Strong smell of smoke through out south Jersey today, Several fire dispatches in Cumberland,Salem and Cape May alarming out for the smell of smoke. Dispatchers say it's coming from a wildfire in Virginia.

We have had it for the past week in New England, mostly RI and Cape Cod. We just blamed it on NJ :)

Don't know about VA, but NC has a 41,000+ acre wildlands fire going in the swamps of eastern NC, and it's creating a real problem smokewise in the adjoining states. I'm 200 miles west, visibility is 3 miles, and the air smells like somebody peed in the barbecue grill.

The reason the smoke smelled funny was the fire was burning in a marshy area. Apparently there was a lot of pete moss burning which smells like an electrical fire. FYI
