PEMBERTON TOWNSHIP — A brush fire that was large enough to close Pemberton-Browns Mills Road started Wednesday afternoon along Juliustown Road behind Lakeshore Mobile Village, according to the Pemberton Township Volunteer Fire Department’s Facebook page.
Firefighters from Joint Base McGuire-Dix-Lakehurst worked on the fire. No homes or structures were in any danger, but smoke was heavy in the Burlington County town, the Fire Department said.
The blaze follows a larger fire that burned 11,600 acres of the Pinelands in Woodland Township this past weekend.
