HAMILTON TOWNSHIP, N.J. (AP) — Crews have contained a forest fire in a remote section of southern New Jersey’s Hamilton Township, west of Atlantic City.

The blaze has burned about 130 acres, and authorities suspect it might have been deliberately set (see related story).

The state Forest Fire Service says the fire broke out around 7 a.m. and was spotted by an airplane.

No homes or businesses are near the fire, which is burning between the Black Horse Pike and the Atlantic City Expressway.
