Looks like a major forest fire shaping up in Barnegat (2:30 PM). Area appears to be Scrubby Pines Camp Ground, West Bay Ave. Numerous mutual aid companies responding, along with Forest Fire Service, and Fire Coordinators. Command Post being set up at Brackman Middle School on Barnegat Blvd. Possibly evacuations are in progress in the Horizon amd Heritage Point developments also. Ops are on Trunk System Fire Zone 5 TG. Fire Coordinators TG active also. Per county dispatch, Ops just switched to Barnegat Conventional Repeater Tower Frequency (2:40 PM).
