Firefighters were dousing hot spots early Wednesday morning after a four-alarm fire destroyed an auto sales and repair building in Pennsauken, New Jersey.
The cleanup effort could delay the morning commute for drivers heading from South Jersey into Philadelphia due to road closures on Route 130/South Crescent Boulevard.
Southbound lanes of Route 130 remain closed near the scene. Northbound lanes of Route 130 have reopened to traffic.
The initial call came in around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday for a raging fire at the US Auto Auction building located on the 6600 block of South Crescent Boulevard. according to Pennsauken Fire Chief Joseph Palumbo.
Chopper 6 was overhead as firefighters worked to contain the inferno. A huge ball of fire shot into the air, producing small explosions inside the building.
Officials say at least three businesses worked out of the now-ravaged warehouse.
