Gas Station Garage Fully Engulfed in Scotch Plains

Scotch Plains New Jersey

Firefighters battled a two-alarm fire that engulfed a garage at a Scotch Plains gas station this afternoon.

There were no injuries immediately reported in the blaze, which erupted around 2:30 p.m. at the Lukoil gas, which houses Lou's Automotive, on North Avenue.

The fire which was mostly contained to the repair shop, is believed to have started after a car caught on fire.

Union County Hazmat were also called to the scene after crews found drums of oil in the fire building.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation, according to officials.

Crews from Fanwood, Plainfield, Westfield, Linden and Roselle responded to the scene.
