For­est Fire Ser­vice re­stricts out­door burn­ing

The Morning Call - - LOCAL / REGION -

TREN­TON, N.J. — Re­cent dry weather that’s pre­dicted to con­tinue for the next sev­eral days is good news for campers but has prompted state fire of­fi­cials to im­pose re­stric­tions on out­door fires.

The New Jer­sey For­est Fire Ser­vice has is­sued re­stric­tions for Mor­ris, Pas­saic, Hun­ter­don, Som­er­set, Sus­sex and War­ren coun­ties.

Fire dan­ger is listed as high in those ar­eas.

Fires on the ground are pro­hib­ited un­less they’re en­closed in a ring of steel, stone, brick, or con­crete with a gravel or ma­sonry base.
