EDISON - A four-alarm fire destroyed an abandoned building in Edison this morning.

Edison fire officials say the fire at 2016 Woodbridge Ave. began at around 7:25 a.m.

Officials say two firefighters suffered minor injuries while fighting the fire. A school and several nearby homes were evacuated as a precaution.

Woodbridge Avenue was shut down while crews worked to extinguish the blaze. It was reopened in time for the evening rush. The Route 1 ramp to Woodbridge Avenue was also closed.

People living in the area reported on the News 12 New Jersey Facebook page that heavy smoke filled the nearby area.

The fire chief says the fire spread fast because of the shape of the building. Two firefighters and a police officer were all treated for minor injuries, including smoke inhalation.
