KEARNY, N.J. (CBSNewYork) — Firefighters continued working Wednesday evening to put out small brush fires and hotspots along Interstate 280 in Harrison, N.J.
The fire forced service on NJ TRANSIT and PATH trains to be suspended for more than an hour earlier Wednesday afternoon.
No injuries were reported, but strong winds were hindering efforts to contain the fire, officials said.
“It keeps on blowing the fire further down and you’re trying to chase up to it,” Harrison Fire Capt. Joseph Nichirco said. “So we put apparatus in front of it to try to contain it and try to work to the middle and put it out.”
