A waterfront property in Atlantic City went up in flames this afternoon. The fire broke out at 110 N. Trenton Avenue shortly before 1:30. The home, an older 2-3 story multi-family building, went to 3-alarms by 1:50.

Fuel left in gas tanks on the dock in front of the home caught fire and exploded.

New Jersey State Police have shutdown Exit 2 eastbound on the Atlantic City Expressway for a period of time to keep traffic off Albany Avenue.

Fire officials say the structure bordered an abandoned marina, formerly known as Cramer's Marina. Residents consider the marina a problem area. In fact, there was another fire there 2 years ago. The cause was undetermined.

Up to 65 firefighters were on the scene at the height of the blaze.

The fire was brought under control by late afternoon, but not before the side of a nearby building was damaged by the heat and flames.

Luckily no one was injured.
