Huge columns of black, then gray, then white smoke could be seen from Washington Heights and Upper Manhattan after the fire broke out in the office-like trailer behind Fort Lee Getty on Palisade Avenue around 6 a.m.
Fort Lee firefighters confined the rampaging blaze, protecting the gas station and other nearby buildings and vehicles. Assisting were their colleagues from Cliffside Park and Ridgefield.
Eight vehicles in all were reportedly either damaged or destroyed.
No injuries were reported.
