I saw the fire as I headed down Rt. 206, and a helicopter landing at the Atsion Ranger Station, along with a bunch of troopers. There was a lot of smoke west of Atsion Lake and as I turned onto Railroad Ave I was thinking I might be making a mistake. When I came out an hour later I had to run a blockade to get back onto Rt. 206 north, and the fire looked to be right at Rt. 206, south of the lake.
Might want to contact the EACC about why NJ does not contribute data.Yes 46'r, that would do nicely if Jersey would publish something like that within, say, a month after the burn is out.
The fire burnt south of Rairitan Ave at Sandy Causeway. With all the backfires it sounds like it goes to parkwood and out to 206. Didn't look particularly hot on 206The fire in the above photo has to be somewhere near the plastic bridge unless it is further as mentioned above near Atco.
