Crews Battle Fire at Christmas Warehouse

The cause of the fire is under investigation

Fire crews battled a four-alarm fire on Saturday afternoon at a Christmas warehouse in Burlington County, N.J.

The call came in around 2:30 p.m. and nearly 100 firefighters rushed to the "Christmas Tree Shops" warehouse on Daniels Way in Florence Township.

Fire officials on the scene tell NBC10 the fire originated near the solar panels on the roof of the building, but won't know how it actually started until an investigation is complete.

Fire crews prepared for the worst case scenario after facing similar challenges during a Dietz & Watson warehouse fire in the same county back in September. Because of the hazards caused by the solar panels on the top of that meat distribution center in Delanco, it took firefighters more than 24 hours to get the 11-alarm blaze under control.

Saturday's fire was not nearly as large, with only heavy smoke, not flames, rising from the building. Fire officials tell NBC10 the fire never made it to the interior of the building and was isolated to part of the roof.

No one was injured.

Christmas Tree Shops are part of the Bed Bath & Beyond family, with stores located in 21 states.
