FAIRFIELD, N.J. – More than a dozen cars caught fire Thursday in New Jersey, authorities said.

It happened before sunrise at 100 U.S. 46 in Fairfield at what appears to be an auction yard filled with vehicles. The charred skeletons of several cars sat in the lot as the sun rose, with flames periodically reigniting among the vehicles.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

No one was hurt in the blaze.
