“200-Foot Flames Ravage Southern New Jersey: Jimmy’s Waterhole Fire 50% Contained After 24 Hours

A rapidly spreading wildfire in southern New Jersey has spread across 3,859 acres in less than 24 hours, with no reported injuries or damage to structures. John Cecil, the assistant commissioner of state parks, forests and historic sites at the New Jersey Department of Environmental Protection, said the fire was a "severe situation" with "200-foot flames raining fire embers." 170 structures in the Manchester Township area were evacuated Tuesday night, but all residents have since been allowed to return home. Firefighters are continuing to battle the blaze and are working to contain it, with the cause of the fire still under investigation.
