Fire in NJ Pine Barrens

There is a wildfire in the NJ Pine Barrens in the Warton Forest area. See this report from the Wildland Fire website. And see this article.

Early reports say this is a fast moving fire capable of burning 1,000+ acres. Part of the area was burned in August 2007 reducing fire behavior in that area.

Not a surprise, it has been dry recently and I was on the NJ Forest Fire website earlier today where they reported a high fire risk for the Pine Barrens.
