Fire at Auto Body Shop

A fire at an auto repair shop sent thick smoke into the air this morning.

The blaze broke out at GNS Motors -- a warehouse-like building back behind some trees off Taunton Avenue in West Berlin, Camden County, N.J.

There were no reports of injury and no one was inside the building when the blaze began, according to authorities.

As SkyForce10 hovered overhead firefighters could be seen battling the blaze around noon.

Firefighters were able to contain the blaze to one of several units inside the building, according to officials.

The fire marshal said that an official cause for the blaze is pending investigation but that it appeared that someone working at the shop last night left something that smoldered overnight and led to the fire taking off when the door to the facility was opened this morning.
