A massive, 11-alarm fire at a chemical plant in Passaic, New Jersey on Friday caused residents to flee the area as the flames lit up the surrounding night sky.

No injuries or fatalities from the fire have been reported at this time. Multiple reports have stated that the building has collapsed, although Newsweek has not independently confirmed this.

The massive blaze continued to burn even after the structural failure of the plant, as the fire crept towards other buildings. Smoke billowed across the river into New York City, and weather radar showed that traces of smoke could be detected more than 50 miles into the Atlantic Ocean.

You can actually see the #Passaic chemical fire on radar. It’s especially clear on the velocity scan. That’s smoke extending over 50 miles into the Atlantic. #NJwx #NorthJersey pic.twitter.com/4wjIbRQ2qU
