We're now getting alerting telephone calls re a working fire near us. "If you smell smoke..." and apparently smoke was noticed as far away as NYC.

Edit: 6 calls, same msg, in 10 min. Geez.

Bill, I don't know. Don't have USFS frequencies in the scanner, nor could I hear the ground communications. The rain moved in during the afternoon hours, and I'm sure the heavy downpours helped to quell the fire. And after I posted the message, I did see the smoke had made it to PA as well. Wind must have been blowing along the front that moved through. I love the pines and holly trees on the place, but fire does make me nervous at times. This was the first time in 35 years we had robocalls about a forest fire.

There was 2 NJFFS Ag Cats doing drops. USFS doesn't come in to NJ unless requested (or all hell has broke loose)
