The fire was reported about 5 PM several hundred feet off the park’s main road – which has been shut as firefighters attempt to bring the approximately one acre fire under control.
The New Jersey Forest Fire Service today urged the public to exercise extra caution when outdoors, as forest fire levels remain at high. The warm weather is contributing to the high level, officials said. [TLS]-------------
