TOMS RIVER — Crews are still working to extinguisher a compactor fire at the Stop & Shop on Route 37 East.
Toms River Fire Inspector Kevin Esposito told Jersey Shore Online a lingering smell of smoke remains in the store. No damage to the store and no injuries have been reported.
The store had to be shut down for a time because a sprinkler head activated by the compactor. However, the store should be reopened shortly, Esposito said.
He said fire companies from Toms River, Silverton and East Dover responded.
No cause has been determined as of yet, as the fire is ongoing.
