Forest fire raging in New Jersey

A firefighting task force is on the scene Saturday of a raging forest fire in Burlington County near a housing development. Firefighters are struggling to bring it under control.

The forest fire is near Route 70 and Lakehurst Road in Pemberton, and the first 911 call came in around 12:51 p.m., said an emergency dispatch supervisor for the county.

The fire is on the perimeter of the Country Lakes housing development, though there had not yet been a call for evacations, the dispatcher said.

The firefighting effort was being spearheaded by Pemberton Fire Department and New Jersey forestry forces, she said. There was no early word on the number of acres involved. Author Philly.com

First actual report from the scene since the fire was reported. CP 18  reports the fire is at 300+ acres, fire breaks and back burns are not working well due to extreme dry conditions and 40 mph winds.
