Smokey Edison, NJ wildfire contained in industrial area

Edison – A wildfire in the industrial area of ​​New Jersey’s Trumpet was completely engulfed on Tuesday night.

The fire broke out at around 11 a.m. on Edison’s Field Road in the area known as Kin-Book Trash, according to the Edison City Administration. Firefighters from Edison and the New Jersey Forest Service consume 59 hectares of land at 6 p.m.

Edison Police Captain Ken Shreck was evacuated when smoke billowed into the ventilation of a warehouse on Saumil Road.

“No one is sick,” Shrek said in a statement. But we do not want them to smoke.

Smoke persisted for several hours as staff inspected the hot spots.

The cause of the fire

The State Forest Service is continuing its investigation into the cause of the fire, but Andy Tott, coordinator of Edison’s Emergency Prevention Bureau, said dry conditions played a role.

“At the moment we do not suspect any suspicious activity. Today it is really dry; It seems that Toth started out in the sun.

In June, two large wildfires erupted in the Atlantic and ocean counties.

The Brickworks fire engulfed 315 hectares of forest in the state of Brendan T. Bayrn on June 26 in Manchester and Woodland.

One of the reasons why “Garden State” remains an appropriate nickname for New Jersey – the end of summer means the coming of the spring season.

There are at least six fields that cover the territory. Some will bloom from early August, while others are scheduled to reach their peak from late August to late September.

If the weather seems to be a problem, it’s always a good idea to call or email before you go abroad.
