NJ firehouse catches fire; cause not yet known

Investigators are trying to determine what caused a fire at a southern New Jersey firehouse.

Woodbury Heights Fire Chief Rob Conley says the Friday morning fire broke out on the second floor of the volunteer department's headquarters. One firefighter was treated for smoke inhalation.

Part of the building that contained a meeting room and offices had to be demolished because of fire damage.

The federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms conducted tests on materials from the fire scene to determine what caused the blaze.

Traffic in the vicinity was diverted during the morning hours after the blaze broke out.
