NEWARK, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Tuesday’s warm and dry conditions were apparently to blame for three brush fires along the New Jersey Turnpike.
The fires burned in Carlstadt, Kearny and Ridgefield, Joe Biermann reported from Chopper 2 HD. All three were along the Turnpike’s western spur.
Fire officials said all three fires were out as of early Tuesday evening. However, crews were to remain on the scene through the night in case of any flare-ups.
