A massive fire broke out at a Salvation Army store in Union City Thursday night. Newscopter 7 was over the scene as firefighters battled the raging inferno at the Salvation Army thrift store and donation center located at 900 John F. Kennedy Boulevard. The fire devoured the roof with shooting flames that destroyed the building. Inside the thrift store, where it started, the merchandise burned to ashes. From the lowest angle they could get to, to the highest perch they could manage, firefighters tried in vain to drown the blaze for hours, but it kept on burning. Just as it started, Anthony Lamont smelled the smoke in his apartment. A police officer came to help residents get out. Two of Lamont's cats were outside with him Thursday night, a third cat was still in the apartment.
