Another fire broke out at a chlorine factory in Kearny.

KEARNY, New Jersey (WABC) -- Firefighters in New Jersey battled a fire Wednesday night at the same chlorine plant that was the scene of a fire in May.

The Kearny Fire Department responded to the fire at a factory at 55 Jacobus Avenue, under the Pulaski Skyway.
