Chopper 6 was over the scene as a portion of the roof caved in.

Much of the building has been destroyed. It appears that only the perimeter remains.

Authorities say the fire is threatening neighboring properties, which appear to be residential homes.

There are road closures in the area. This has prompted the Pennsbury School District to issue the following alert:

“Please be prepared for transportation delays this morning due to a major fire on New Falls Road near Pennsbury High School.  Several surrounding roads are also closed at this time. We are currently rerouting buses as needed.”

The fire continues to shoot flames and huge clouds of smoke over the Lower Bucks County area.
