Fire Season in NJ -- Starting Fires in Order to Prevent Them

An unusually dry winter has left the forest floor especially brittle this year, so he NJ Forest Fire Service has spent recent weeks getting ready for forest fire season — the transition time from winter to spring — which begins Thursday and continues to May 15.
Burning leaves and brush early in the year stops bigger fires from developing later. So far this year, there were 10 controlled burns in northern New Jersey, 86 in the central part of the state and 24 in the south. More fron The Asbury Park Press
