Authorities are investigating a fire which damaged the Granville Concrete Products building in Randolph Township, New Jersey.
Randolph Township fire officials received a call about a fire at Granville Concrete Products on Route 10. A passerby noticed the blaze and contacted the local fire department.
Firefighters quickly responded to the scene and put out the fire. However, the damage to the building was significant.
While the fire raged, authorities had to shut down westbound lanes on Route 10 near Dover Chester Road. The lanes were reopened after a little more than two hours. Meanwhile, firefighters had to remain at the scene of the fire because they had “structural concerns” about the front of the building, which suffered significant damage.
The good news is that no one was injured as a result of the fire. Thankfully, the building was unoccupied at the time of the blaze.
The incident is being actively investigated by the Randolph Police Department and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office. If the investigators determine that the fire was a result of arson, the offender could face significant criminal charges.
