Prescribed Burns in NJ (NJ Forest Fire Service): March 24th & 25th

Prescribed burns conducted by the New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) continue this week. There has been some light rain this afternoon up in north Jersey, where the NJFFS are not conducting prescribed burns. I don't know if the rain reached to the areas where prescribed burns were planned and if so whether the burns were able to continue or had to be postponed. Rain is forecast the next couple of days, so I don't know if there will be any more prescribed burns this week.

A small map of New Jersey by county with a listing of counties in each of the three New Jersey Forest Fire Service (NJFFS) Divisions may be found here (scroll down a bit). A second map of New Jersey from the New Jersey Forest Fire Service shows the boundaries of the three NJFFS Divisions, with the location of each Division Section may be found here.
