Another fire?

 

This time it’s in Ocean County, more specifically Beachwood and Berkeley Township.  The fire started around 11:45am yesterday, and is about 30 percent contained.  It’s already burned 300 acres.  Some residents were even forced to evacuate for a period of time, but they have now returned to their homes.

 

Firefighters are also still taking care of the forest fire in Downe Township, which is expected to continue to burn for another few days.  It has already consumed 1,500 acres of land and is about 55 percent contained.  April is fire season in South Jersey, and with high wind gusts over the last few days, the weather certainly hasn’t helped containing these forest fires.

 

Another fire was reported in Galloway Twp, but it only burned a half an acre and it was caused by careless smoking.
