I can confirm Burlington County x 2: Tabernacle/Woodland and Fort Dix/Range 14. As I type this right now two NJFFS aerial tankers are lining up to dump on the Tabernacle/Woodland fire. I'm about 3 miles from the first, 6 from the second, fire. Also see the Burlington County Times newspaper phillyBurbs.com : Burlington County Times for some video. Winds are 30-40 mph out of the West, expected to continue through this evening.
