VIDEO: Flames and smoke could be seen for miles coming from a building near a home in the 400 block of Dreibelbis Station Road in Greenwich Township, near I-78. Virginville Fire Chief Mark Richards said it seemed like a controlled burn got out of control. He tells 69 News a fire marshal is investigating. "We did have about 2,000 gallons between a mixture of heating oil and fuel inside the main building, which was causing a lot of issues," Richards said. He told 69 News tankers and a hazmat team had to be brought in. According to the chief, first responders heard some explosions from drums popping off as the fuel heated up. Mervin Smith lives nearby and said he saw fire trucks responding around 2 p.m. He went to see what was going on.
