A cell phone tower caught fire in New Jersey Thursday morning, prompting the structure to lean dangerously to its side, police said.

Police said the cell phone tower tilted five or six feet to one side after its cables caught fire.

The tower is on the edge of the fire department's academy in Middletown.

The leaning tower is not close to any buildings, any authorities are trying to determine if they can upright it or it needs to be removed.
