Cause of Lacey Fire Under Investigation

State forest fire officials continue to investigate a wildfire that charred up six acres of marshland and about a half an acre of forest.

The blaze began yesterday afternoon around 3:10 p.m. near the Forked River Marina. It threatened several homes on East Lakeside Drive. Several residents left their homes in a panic as a result. No injuries were reported and fire crews were able to contain it about twenty minutes later.

New Jersey remains under a red flag warning right now due to a lack of rain. The risk of forest fires is very real in much of the Garden State. Dry conditions create a recipe for disaster. Authorities warn if you see smoke, let them know as soon as possible. A series of controlled burns is still going on at various points around the state.

Because of the fire danger alert being elevated, officials have placed several campfire restrictions until further notice. State one camp fire restrictions means fires directly on the ground are prohibited unless in a prepared fire ring constructed of steel, stone, brick or concrete with a gravel or masonry base.


Also, it’s never a good idea to toss a lit cigarette ANYWHERE especially near wooded areas.
