WOODBRIDGE, N.J. (AP) — Firefighters are battling a large brush fire in central New Jersey.
No injuries have been reported in the blaze, which broke out late Wednesday afternoon in Woodbridge Township, near the junction of Interstate 287 and the Garden State Parkway.
The fire was consuming a large area of brush and mulch, and the flames also had reportedly spread to several tractor-trailers in a nearby parking lot. The fire was also producing plumes of thick black smoke that could be seen for miles.
It wasn’t immediately ear how many acres had been damaged by the fire.
The cause of the blaze remains under investigation.
