A massive fire burning in a warehouse in North Brunswick, N.J., Wednesday morning created smoke that could be seen for miles, 6ABC reports.
The five-alarm fire broke out just after 2:30 a.m. inside the DCH Collision Center on Livingston Avenue. The warehouse is reportedly full of cars.
Heavy flames engulfed the building, which one police officer said is as big as 50 football fields. The fire apparently burned through the roof.
Residents of the nearby Birchwood Apartments condo complex were evacuated as a precaution.
Smoke was visible for miles.
Mayor Francis "Mac" Womack said residents of North Brunswick and South Brunswick could experience low water pressure.
"They should conserve water and be prepared for that," Womack told NJ.com.
The warehouse is reportedly located next to the New Jersey Transit Northeast Corridor tracks. No train delays were reported.
Fox29 reported that firefighters are letting the fire burn itself out.
