A six-alarm blaze destroyed part of a large industrial metals plant in Camden's Cramer Hill neighborhood overnight, shooting flames high into the air for more than four hours, and forcing some residents from their homes.
The fire at Magentic Metals erupted about 10:45 p.m. Monday and was declared under control about 2:50 a.m., according to Camden Deputy Fire Chief Edward Glassman. However, crews were still poring water on parts of structure just before daybreak. Glassman said officials had no idea yet what ignited the fire.
No one was injured and the fire was contained in a three-story high, mostly unused structure of the plant, about 350-feet by 400-feet.
