Meadowlands Brush Fire

That's a photo of the brush fire still burning near the MetLife Stadium and Meadowlands sports complex. The smoke can be seen from miles away and while it wasn't affecting NJ Transit, it was affecting several local highways, including Route 130. Traffic helicopters were out in abundance covering this latest brush fire in the area, which follows several other major fires on Long Island, Staten Island, and New Jersey.

With a lack of rain dating back to January 1, emergency officials across the region are bracing for still more fires to break out due to the extremely dry conditions.
