The eight-alarm fire broke out Friday night at the Qualco warehouse on 2 Canal Street in Passaic.
Mayor Hector Lora is asking all Passaic residents to keep their windows closed and to stay inside because it is a dangerous chemical fire.
He says streets are blocked off from Passaic St. from 1st St. past Columbia Ave all the way up to Main Ave. As of right now, officials say surrounding buildings do not need to evacuate.
Firefighters on the scene are dealing with severe water issues due to a lack of water pressure from the hydrants.
There is no word yet on any injuries.
The cause of the fire remains under investigation, but the structure of the building is likely condemned.
According to its website, Qualco provides pool and spa water treatment products.
