In the video above from mussocpa on YouTube there are explosions at 1:18; 1:24; 2:39 and 3:44.
A fairly wild scene at a warehouse fire in Florence, New Jersey (Burlington County) that began late Saturday night and lasted until early this morning. On these videos you will see and hear multiple blasts and ignition of gases that appear to come from a variety of sources. As you will see from this link to an article in The Trentonian there was pretty much nothing left of the structure this morning.
Flames broke out at a warehouse in Florence, NJ just after 11:30 Saturday night. Flames leaped into the air as several explosions went off inside. Part of the roof collapsed, making the fire harder for crews to fight.
Luckily, none of the firefighters were hurt.
Officials at the scene Sunday morning declined to comment on the extent of the blaze, but a lid that was buckled outward for a 55-gallon drum, on the property adjacent to G.J.P. Enterprises and fire fighters pointing to a truck that had also received fire damage across the street tell the tale. The wild late-night fire that raged for five hours until it was placed under control at 4 a.m., though at 11 a.m. some pockets of fire still remained as demolition crews sifted through the wreckage with a large backhoe.
G.J.P Enterprises is a Trenton area business that specializes in distribution of import and export freight that serves all of New Jersey.
The Trentonian was unable to obtain comment from the Chief of the Florence Township Fire Chief at the scene and the cause remains under investigation.
