I heard this on the radio on the way to work - it was 10% contained then, it's about 30% contained now. Hopefully the thunderstorms forecast for the afternoon might help, but lightning could start new fires also. The land is so dry even though it has rained quite a bit.

The news is that an F16 from the NJ National Guards dropped a flare which started all this.

Here's hoping that the fire is contained quickly. These are some of the best preserved forests in Jersey. It's so sad to see these go up in flames - another instance of a man-made disaster.
