Two New Jersey Wildfires Brought Under Control [PHOTOS]

At 1:30 p.m., the New Jersey Forest Fire Service said it reached 100 percent containment of a 5,475-acre wildfire in the area of Allen Road in Bass River State Forest.

Forest Fire Service staff will remain on scene and continue to monitor control lines and address areas of concern until significant precipitation occurs to ensure public safety.

The public is advised that smoke may be visible for an extended period while firefighters work to mop-up the wildfire. Motorists traveling in the area should remain cautious of smoke. Additionally, we ask that motorists watch for firefighters and fire vehicles that may be working on the roadsides.

Over the course of the fire six structures were threatened and approximately 40 people were evacuated from the Timberline Campground.

The cause of the fire remains under investigation.

No injuries were reported.

Meanwhile, a second 210-acre wildfire, also in Burlington County, was also brought to 100% containment at around 6 pm today.
