Fire strikes Hillsborough nursery


A storage barn on the property of BW Nursery on Zion Road in the township’s Neshanic section was destroyed after a large fire engulfed it this afternoon. The Neshanic Fire Company was called to the scene at 1 p.m. No injuries were reported. The cause has not been determined. Fire officials say a power line fell on the barn, but have not concluded whether that caused the fire or whether the fire caused the power line to fall. Smoke could be seen from the Somerville Circle, about eight miles away. The BW Nursery sells trees, shrubs, perennials and other plants. After the fire was knocked down around 1:30 p.m., firefighters continued to tend the scene to prevent flare-ups.
