Pleasantville, NJ – Warehouse fire contained by sprinkler system; Firefighters finish the job

Firefighters extinguished a fire Saturday in a commercial building in the 700 block of West Delilah Road.  Firefighters were dispatched to the ABC Supply Co. for a report of activated fire and water flow alarms at 4:10 p.m.  Fire crews smelled smoke, forced a door and found heavy smoke in the warehouse, Battalion Chief Scott Trythall said, and found materials inside the warehouse on fire.  “The sprinkler system was activated and contained the fire until we were able to locate the seat of the fire and extinguish it all the way,” Trythall said.  The incident was under control within 45 minutes, he said.  The Farmington and West Atlantic City volunteer fire companies covered the Pleasantville station while the South Jersey Airport Fire Department’s Station 1 and Northfield and Absecon companies responded to the scene, Trythall said. Pleasantville police also responded and Tricare EMS provided rehab, he said.  There were no injuries, Trythall said.
