NEW BRUNSWICK TOWNSHIP, N.J. (CBS) — A huge warehouse fire burned out of control in North Brunswick Township, New Jersey early Wednesday morning.

The fire in Middlesex County sent thick black smoke and flames up into the sky that could be seen for miles.

It’s unclear what is inside the warehouse at this point. People living nearby the fire have been evacuated as a precaution.

The fire is also impacting mass transit in the area — the warehouse is located right next to the New Jersey Transit North-East Corridor tracks.
