The thick, black smoke due to the raging fire could be seen from miles. Firefighters responded at 4:20 a.m. and quickly went into an offensive fight by going inside the warehouse. Portions of the warehouse roof collapsed.

The warehouse was immediately evacuated. A fireboat was also called to respond to the blaze.

The warehouse destroyed by the blaze is next to the dock for the SS Jeremiah O’Brien, a historic ship used during World War II. As per officials, the ship was saved.

The SS Jeremiah O’Brien is one of only two remaining Liberty ships, among 2,710 that were built and launched during the Second World War, and it’s the only one that remains historically accurate.
