NJ Warehouse Fire Likely to Burn for Days

Firefighters continue to monitor the blaze that started Wednesday afternoon.

Firefighters continue to monitor the progress of a stubborn fire that broke out inside a northern New Jersey warehouse last week.

The blaze in Elizabeth was contained during the weekend. But officials say it 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. And 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.
