BREAKING: Several Buses, Trailer Ignited in Flames in Kearny


By Richard L. Smith 

There are no official reports of injuries in a fire with several busses ignited in flames in Kearny Monday. 

Early morning fire tore through about seven buses and a trailer stored inside a lot just off Route 1&9 at 85 Lincoln Highway just before 6 a.m. 

Firefighters arrived at the scene and stretched multiple lines before pouring water on heavy flames coming from the lot. 

According to preliminary reports, about 4 of the buses have been totally destroyed, and the cause of the fire is under investigation. Because where the fire is off the roadway, traffic has not been affected at this time. 

This was a fast-moving and spectacular fire that is now under control. 

We are awaiting an information request sent to the Kearny Police Department to update you on this fire.
