Firefighters from 3 counties battled a blaze in South Jersey that destroyed a restaurant.

Fire broke out around 4:30 a.m. Saturday at the Horsin Around Bar and Grill restaurant on the 1000 block of the Black Horse Pike in Folsom, Atlantic County.

Fire crews report smoke was pouring from the first floor upon their arrival. Flames then quickly engulfed the entire building.

The mostly rural area has no fire hydrants so local crews were forced to call in tanker trucks from Camden and Gloucester Counties to assist.

Officials say the fire completely destroyed the restaurant.

There were no injuries reported and no cause has been determined.
