A woman was hurt in a 2-alarm South Jersey fire that crews battled for more than an hour early Saturday morning.
Firefighters responded around 4 a.m. to a blaze at 605 Stiles Avenue in Maple Shade Township, Burlington County after a panic alarm from the building, which houses South Jersey Mowers, alerted them to smoke and flames, officials said.
Ninety minutes later, crews were still working to contain the massive fire -- which continued to tear through the building.
The victim suffered smoke inhalation and was rushed to a local hospital, where she is in stable condition, authorities said.
South Jersey Mowers - a landscaping equipment business -- has been in business since 1981, according to the company's website.
Officials closed nearby Route 73 from Main Street to Stiles Avenue shortly before 6 a.m. as crews continued to douse the flames with water. The roadway reopened around 9:30 a.m.
