Wildfire in Middlesex County NJ is almost contained

The wildfire in Old Bridge NJ that I wrote about yesterday is nearing containment. According to the latest report from my friends at NJ Forest Fire Service Section B10, the fire was at 80 percent containment at 5 AM this morning, be sure to check out some great shots of a helo and bucket (NJFFS Delta 5).

Go here to see a short article from and a photo gallery of photos from the fire.

As for wildfires elsewhere in NJ and nearby NY, according to an article I saw yesterday in the Courier News there were numerous wildfires around NJ over the weekend (this article was written well before wildfire in Old Bridge was contained). CBS2 in NYC reported yesterday on two brush fires on Long Island.

Winds have died down considerably since yesterday. The National Weather Service is forecasting a nor'easter for Tuesday night into Wednesday. Depending on the exact tract of this storm, we could see some welcome rain. Although at a bad time for holiday travels. Stay safe everyone.
