NWS Earle Announces Controlled Burning of Some Forested Areas

People in Tinton Falls and Howell may notice smoke, but they should not be alarmed.

If you see smoke coming from wooded sections of Naval Weapons Station Earle in coming months, be aware it may be part of a "controlled burn" to lower the risk of forest fires. 

The NWS Earle Fire Department announced Wednesday it will sett closely monitored fires the first week of 2013, and continue in different areas through February and March. This is the time of year when a potential hazard is very low. 

The controlled burns will primarily be conducted in areas of the Station bordering Tinton Falls, as well as adjacent to Route 34 in Colts Neck and Howell townships.  

For more information, contact Michael K. Brady, Public Affairs Officer, (732) 866-2171.
