New Jersey has heard all of the jokes before, but this time they’re somewhat accurate.
Due to an extensive brush fire in southern New Jersey, parts of New York picked up the smell of smoke Monday morning.
NBC 10 Philadelphia reported that a forest fire at the Wharton State Forest in Hammonton sent more than 1,500 acres of land up in flames Sunday into Monday. The New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection said the blaze was only about half contained as of Monday morning.
