A fire crew is back on the scene of the Dietz & Watson warehouse in Burlington County, just five days after a massive fire gutted the entire building.

Authorities say some rubbish caught on fire this evening at the warehouse on Cooperstown Road in Delanco.

The fire is small and just one fire truck responded to the scene, authorities say.

Last Sunday, more than 200 firefighters from Burlington, Mercer, Gloucester, Camden and Atlantic Counties were brought to the distribution center which is about 300,000 square feet -- roughly the size of five football fields.

The fire started inside the cold storage facility on Sunday afternoon and wasn't contained until Monday evening.

The roof, which was lined with thousands of solar panels
, collapsed hours after the fire started.

No workers were inside the building at the time of the fire and two firefighters suffered minor injuries.
