A Wildfire Warning Has Been Issued For Today
Most of us will remember the large fire that burned over 300 acres in Beachwood two years ago. Today, the National Weather Service is warning that conditions could lead to similar dangerous situations in our area.
The NWS has issued a warning for an, "elevated risk for the spread of wildfires...".
Dry conditions along with a gusty wind at times, could cause a small flare up to get out of control, much like it did in 2014.
If you remember, it turned out that that massive fire was sparked by a discarded cigarette butt.
Flicking that cigarette butt out of your car window isn't only litter, but it could turn into a disaster for Ocean County, especially with today's conditions.
