More smoke will be visible today at the Jersey Shore as firefighters conduct two prescribed burns.
New Jersey Forest Fire Service crews will be burning at the Warren Grove Bombing Range located to the west of the Garden State Parkway in Burlington County.
The service says a large smoke column will be visible through the day.
Further north near the border of Ocean and Monmouth counties, crews will be conducting burns near Six Flags Great Adventure.
Since late last week, northern Jersey Shore residents have been reporting a smoky haze. That was due to controlled burns on Friday and Saturday.
More smoke was reported yesterday amid a major forest fire in the Greenwood Forest Wildlife Management Area in Manchester. The fire, which was mostly contained last night at 570 acres, was extinguished this morning.
No structures were damaged.
When in doubt about the source of the smoke or fire, the state Department of Environmental Protection advises calling 9-1-1 or 877-WARN-DEP (877-927-6337).
