One person was injured yesterday in an Ocean County industrial-park fire that forced authorities to evacuate about 2,000 homes in a nearby senior citizens' development. The fire occurred at the P&D Auto Supply Co. in the Toms River industrial park on Route 37 about 10:30 a.m., said Dover Township Patrolman Kenneth Leone. The evacuations at the Holiday City development in Berkeley Township began about 11 a.m., and residents were not allowed to return home for two hours, a police dispatcher said.

The West Caln Planning Commission has recommended final approval for a 136- acre, 49-lot industrial park near the Chester County Airport after months of give-and-take between the Lancaster County developer and township officials. Within only 15 minutes at Wednesday's meeting, the commission recommended final approval. All summer, the commission and township supervisors ironed out details of the plan, requesting the widening of Airport Road from the Route 30 Bypass beyond the Highland Corporate Center to South Bonsall Road because of a sharp curve near the end of the industrial park's boundaries.

A developer seeking to build an industrial park that would straddle Tredyffrin and Willistown was told by the Tredyffrin Planning Commission on Thursday that his major problems lie in the area of drainage and parking. Stephen Aichele, a councilman who is the liaison to the Planning Commission, told developer Milton Furey that Tredyffrin would accept Willistown's requirements for the special industrial district at Industrial Park and Cedar Hollow Road. Most of the district is in Willistown.

The West Caln Planning Commission has recommended approval for a 136-acre, 49-lot industrial park near the Chester County Airport without discussing what some officials have said were hazardous conditions on Airport Road, the subdivision's only access. The commission's approval Wednesday came five months after Valley Township had given its preliminary approval to the Highland Corporate Center, which has been proposed for 100 acres in Valley and 36 acres in West Caln. The center would lie north of the Route 30 Bypass, with Airport Road intersecting it. High Associates of Lancaster, the developers of four other industrial parks, would widen 18-foot Airport Road to 24 feet along the industrial park's boundaries, then taper back the road to 18 feet beyond the park.

Vandalism and the downturn in the economy are threatening the expansion of an industrial park that once promised to spark the renewal of one of Bristol Township's poorest and most drug-ridden neighborhoods. The Magnolia Industrial Park - 11 businesses that have risen from a field of garbage over the last four years - has found no takers for its new 11,000- square-foot office condominium. Officials for the Bristol Township Industrial Development Corporation, the nonprofit group that runs the park, said Magnolia can survive the economic slowdown, which has stalled commercial and industrial development virtually across the nation.

AN ASSOCIATE of former New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez said he was told Hernandez fired the shots that resulted in the death of a semipro football player, according to documents filed in Florida. The records, obtained by the Associated Press, also show that a vehicle wanted in a double killing in Boston a year before had been rented in Hernandez's name. Together, the revelations provide the most damning evidence yet against the 23-year-old star athlete. Hernandez has been charged in the June killing of Boston semipro athlete Odin Lloyd.

If a bunch of young, upstart environmentally conscious entrepreneurs were going to make the struggling Chester County borough of Modena their home base, then the name had to reflect their place and purpose. So Jim Bricker, Rob Mastrippolito, and Brendan Steer relocated Waste Oil Recyclers, their vegetable-oil fuel conversion business, and then renamed the industrial park they later purchased. Out of Modena came MoGreena. The tiny borough, about a third of a square mile with 585 residents, is now a hub for several like-minded businesses whose goal is to live with less.

ATTLEBORO, Mass. - New England Patriots tight end Aaron Hernandez was arrested yesterday and charged with murder in the shooting death of a friend prosecutors say had angered the NFL player at a nightclub a few days earlier by talking to the wrong people. Hernandez, 23, was taken from his North Attleborough home in handcuffs just over a week after Boston semipro football player Odin Lloyd's bullet-riddled body was found in an industrial park a mile away. Less than 2 hours after the arrest, the Patriots announced they had cut Hernandez, a 2011 Pro Bowl selection who signed a 5-year contract last summer worth $40 million.

Any time the military decides to close an installation, two things are sure: It will take a long time before the lights go out, and even longer for the site to find a new use. In Philadelphia, the former Navy Yard is being transformed into a business hub. In February, city officials celebrated that 10,000 jobs and 130 companies are now located there. It took more than a decade to get to that point after the Navy signed over 1,000 acres in 2001. Kansas encountered its own military conflict when a massive ammunition plant in Parsons was placed on the 2005 Base Realignment and Closure (BRAC)

IT'S A MOONLESS Thursday night in North Wales, Montgomery County. Down a dead-end street just past the giant Merck & Co. pharmaceutical plant, tucked along the SEPTA R5 railroad tracks, a darkened industrial building attracts a young crowd. The unpaved parking lot is full, light sounds of live jazz seep from the rear door, and the air carries the familiar aroma of malt. Welcome to Prism Brewing's Tap Room, one of the region's best-kept beer-drinking secrets and, it turns out, a harbinger of a remarkable surge of suburban breweries.
