6-14-16 Range 29 Area Fire. At 0730 hours Stations 3& 5 were dispatched to the area of Range 29 for a large brush fire.  This turned into a 2000 acre fire that burned for about a week.  Conditions were prime with very low humidity and a light breeze. Station 1 was called for Tender 16 and relief crews. Crews worked for 3 days to contain the fire and it never left the impact area. NJFFS was requested for additional brush trucks and aerial observation.  Several areas that have not burned in years blew up and burned violently.
