Several Brushfires and Nj Transit Delays After a Fire at a Recycling Plant in Jersey City

In Jersey City, many brush fires were started when a fire at a recycling plant swiftly spread.
On Tuesday, at about 3 p.m., a fire ripped through the multi-purpose Dependable Paper Recycling business on Caven Point Ave., close to where NJ Transit’s Hudson-Bergen Light Rail runs. Within minutes, seven alarms were sounding.

Thick black smoke covered the sky above the first fire scene.

At least one huge building appeared to be on fire in the footage captured by Newscopter 7, along with piles of paper recycling in the yard outside the building.

Director of Jersey City’s Office of Emergency Management Greg Kierce said, “This location, that’s what they deal in, it’s all recyclable paper, and when the fire department arrived everything was put in bundles and all piled on top, probably 10 or 12 feet high, and no matter how much water you dump in there, you have to get inside and break it up.”
To try to separate those piles of paper, a bulldozer was sent in.

During the evening rush hour, passengers were unable to travel between Liberty State Park and Danforth Station on the Hudson-Bergen Light Rail because of the fire.

The winds seemed to have a role in spreading the fire to the nearby dry areas, where it rekindled.

Several locations along Route 78 were captured in flames by drone footage, and the blaze even crossed the roadway and started two fires at Liberty State Park.

A few hours later, a brush fire broke out south of Degraw Avenue in Teaneck along the Teaneck Creek Conservancy, and firefighters worked to extinguish it. The police have said that they have cordoned off the area between Teaneck Road and Frank W. Burr Blvd.

Meanwhile, on Tuesday night, firefighters were battling a forest fire that had spread across 500 acres in Manchester Township, Ocean County. Between Road 539 and Horicon Ave., the blaze spread onto federal, state, and private property.

Meanwhile, in Brick Township, the New Jersey Forest Fire Service responded to a wildfire that had burned 10 acres of land.

The agency, in addition to ground firefighters, also deployed a helicopter and a plane to drop water on the blaze.

A wildfire covering five acres was also being fought by aircraft and ground teams in Howell, where three homes were in danger.

The flames, according to the department, are under control, and nobody was hurt.
The majority of the Tri-State area is under a red flag warning.

When a red flag warning is issued, dangerous fire weather is imminent or already taking place.

The risk for a fire to spread rapidly increases when dry fuels are combined with high wind speeds and low relative humidity.
