Just in -- marsh fire in Edison NJ (April 15th)

April 15th 4 PM. I was just on the B10 NJ Wildland Fire Page and saw a report (updated at 2 PM EDT) on three to five acre wildfire in a marsh in Edison Township (Middlesex County) NJ. NJ Forest Fire Service Section A7 assisted by Section B10 were working the fire with the support of municipal firefighters. SEAT Bravo 1 has made a few drops on the fire assisted by Delta 5 (Helo with bucket). NJ dot com has a short article with photos on the marsh fire.

Update: April 16th 10:15 AM I just checked the B10 NJ Wildland Fire Page for an update on the marsh fire in Edison Twsp that has been named Raritan Arsenal fire. They are reporting (updated on April 15th at 8:30 PM) that the fire burned 30 acres, and is now contained. The B10 NJ Wildland Fire Page updates the current NJ wildfire action section of their page frequently so you may well see different information in that section of their page.
