Newark NJ (Essex) Box 4673 191 Fabyan Pl. 5-5-5+++ Fire in a large 2 sty warehouse (wax factory)Fire started when 100 gallon wax vact exploded causing a massive fire and smoke which could be seen some 20 miles away. This fire quickly excelled to 5 alarms although the 5th alarm was not formally transmitted. There were conflicting reports of some 29 towns relocated or operated at this fire. By far this is the largest blaze Newark has seen in several years as at one point in the blaze All Newark Fire Department units operated at this blaze. Additionally at 6:00 pm Newark fire Headquarters ask Deputy 1 what would he like to do to start relief at the scene. Deputy 1's reply was send reliefs in to help and at this time nobody was being released. (Meaning a somewhat recall?) Fire was declared under control at 8:34pm and units are still operating at the sceen 1/18
