Forest Fire Threat Continues
More windy, dry weather is prompting the state to continue Red Flag Warnings and camp fire restrictions.
A string of brush fires occured throughout the weekend including Lacey, Freehold and Leonardo. Each were contained quickly and no injuries were reported.
2 wildfires burned for much of the weekend along the Atlantic City Expressway in Winslow which has been called suspicious.
West winds of 20-25 MPH and low humidity with gusts heighten the potential for fire to spread quickly. Officials discourage any outdoor burning.
