    A fire destroyed a Bronx warehouse for a moving company early Saturday, fueled by cardboard boxes and packing materials, officials said.

    About 138 firefighters battled the blaze on Tiffany Avenue in Foxhurst, which was reported at about 3:30 a.m., the FDNY said. It was under control just before 6 a.m., though the smell of smoke lingered in the air hours later. 

    The warehouse held supplies for La Rosa Del Monte Worldwide Movers. The moving company still planned to help customers move on Saturday, the owner said. 

    No injuries were reported. The cause of the fire remains under investigation.
