Newark firefighters were battling a blaze this morning in the partially demolished remains of the former Pabst Brewery, authorities said.

The fire in the six-story building, on South Orange Avenue near the Garden State Parkway, was reported at about 8 a.m., said Newark Fire Chief Michael Lalor. It began in the lower floor and spread to the upper floors, he said.

Firefighters were initially attacking the flames from inside the building, but moved outside as a precaution, Lalor said. “We are concerned because it is under demolition. So we are a little leery about working underneath it,” Lalor said.
