Leaves may have started the fire outside a business in Beachwood Saturday April 21 around 5:00 pm but they only started smoking after smoking materials were dumped on top of them.

The Beachwood Volunteer Fire Department with an assist from an off-duty Berkeley Township Police officer were able to put out the blaze at 245 Atlantic City Boulevard.

The blaze looks like it was started from people discarding their smoking materials into the leaf pile under a set of stairs which caught fire.

There were no injuries.

The off duty Berkeley Police Officer contained the fire with an extinguisher until fire crews arrived on scene.
