Firefighters responded to G and North Second streets shortly after 3 a.m., fire Chief Michael Lippincott said. The fire was upgraded to a second alarm, and the department received assistance by fire crews from Vineland, Cedarville, Downe Township and Rosenhayn. Firefighters were on scene for 11 hours, and no injuries were reported.

Lippincott said the warehouse, one of the larger buildings on the site, had to be demolished. The cause of the fire is under investigation.
