NJ Warehouse Fire Contained After 4 Days, But Still Burning

The fire started Wednesday afternoon.

A huge fire that broke out inside a northern New Jersey warehouse four days ago has finally been contained, officials say.     

But theblaze in Elizabeth will likely keep burning

for at least a few more days.

Dozens of firefighters have been battling the blaze since it broke out Wednesday afternoon. But safety concerns about the building's stability have kept them from fully attacking the fire, though the warehouse isn't expected to collapse.     

Authorities aren't sure what sparked the blaze, though it's believed that it started with a car fire inside a body shop in the warehouse.

While it's now unlikely the fire will spread further, it's not clear what items may still be burning.     

No injuries have been reported.     

Crews remained on the scene Sunday to monitor the blaze.
