VIDEO: Firefighters responded to a four-alarm fire in Pleasantville, New Jersey that destroyed a warehouse and injured two firefighters. Crews were called to the 100 block of Main Street shortly before midnight Tuesday. Twenty companies responded from the surrounding areas. The warehouse, filled with auto parts and tires, collapsed in on itself after an intense fire raged for hours overnight. "When I seen the flames, it was time to go," said resident John Bland. The warehouse is located behind retail stores on Main Street and next to a Pleasantville Housing Authority senior high-rise, where residents were evacuated. "They were knocking on all the doors and stuff, so I just went and got my cat," said resident Mahdi Carr. Residents of the high-rise were able to return home around 2 a.m.
