Crews in the Goldsboro area are battling a structure fire at Eastern Aluminum Supply, which sells various building products.

The call came in after noon of the fire at 311 N. Oak Forest Road. Roads are closed and traffic down Hwy. 70 heading to Lenoir County is backed up. Thick black smoke could be seen for miles around the location of the fire and crews are warning people not to go near as there are propane tanks which could explode.

Crews were working into Friday evening to put the fire out and battle hot spots. An investigation into the cause is underway.
