Firefighters from nine local companies battled a two-alarm fire at a Cherry Hill storage facility Monday afternoon.

Units were dispatched to the the Public Storage self-storage facility on Dobbs Lane in the Ashland section of the township just before 4 p.m.

Smoke and heavy fire damaged at least 14 units there, as firefighters from Cherry Hill, Bellmawr, Haddonfield, Haddon Heights, Lawnside, Mount Laurel, Mount Ephraim, Voorhees, and Westmont worked the scene.

The fire was placed under control within 40 minutes of their arrival.

Cherry Hill Fire Chief Chris Callan said the facility was unoccupied at the time of the incident, but that the fire damaged both the contents of the units as well as the buildings themselves due to the intensity of the heat.

No injuries were reported.

The incident is currently under investigation by the township fire marshal.
