A multi-alarm fire that was first reported at 1:30 this morning was still burning after dawn at a condo complex under construction at St. Georges Avenue and Stone Street in Rahway, New Jersey. The large row of four-story buildings was vacant and there are no reports of injuries. News reports indicate the smoke could be seen 25-miles away on the West Side of Manhattan.


Rahway Fire Chief Bill Young said five area engine companies were called to help combat the surging flames. Given the intensity of the fire, the department plans to let it burn itself out since it’s too dangerous for firefighters to get inside the structure.

The wind carried smoke to the neighboring towns of Elizabeth and Linden. NBCNewYork crews could smell it when they got off the Turnpike en route to the scene.
