Authorities in Randolph NJ are investigating a fire which caused significant damage at Granville Concrete Products.
Randolph fire officials received a report of a blaze at the Granville Concrete Products building on Route 10. According to authorities, a passerby saw the fire and immediately called the Randolph Township Fire Department.
When firefighters got to the scene, they quickly put out the fire.
While the fire was still going, local authorities had to temporarily close westbound lanes on Route 10 near Dover Chester Road. The lanes were shut down for just over two hours before finally being reopened for traffic.
However, firefighters remained at the scene of the fire because there were “structural concerns” about the front of the building.
Thankfully, no workers at the company were injured because the building was unoccupied when the fire broke out. Additionally, no firefighters were injured while putting out the fire.
Authorities are not yet able to release additional information about the fire because the incident is still under investigation by the Randolph Police Department and the Morris County Prosecutor’s Office.
If the active investigation eventually results in the arrest of a suspect, they could face significant charges for arson.
