Looks like they will be burning today and this week in the Cloverdale area, Greenwood near the county line, Lebanon near the Pole Branch and close to 70, in Bass River near Route 9 and near Warren Grove near Warren Grove Road. Also, in Medford along Stokes Road and Hawkins Road and further south Peaslee.

I was down by Batso on Saturday and the field across the street was recently burned too. Walked along the shores of the Mullica during the west winds. Lots of glass mixed with the gravel near Hermann City ruins. Is this old glass from the works? I know they produced rectangular and round bottles. Lots of dark brown glass.

Went back today, the burned area begins somewhere around the parking area here and goes West as far as the link I posted yesterday. But it looks like they are preparing to burn to somewhere around here. They are only burning a strip about 50 ft (?) wide on the North side of the road. They burned the rye strip(s) about a week ago.

I saw they had planned on doing it. I will be there soon.
 
I drove down Sandy Causeway through Waterford yesterday and came upon some smoldering remnants of a burn. Also, there was this dirt trail next to it. Is this a firebreak?

Look like they will be burning around the Forked River Mountains on the south side soon. It appears they already completed a burn in that area.
