Start Date: 9/27/2019 -  
The New Jersey Forest Fire Service enacted several fire restrictions as dry weather hastens the fall fire season. Counties in Division A in the northern part of the state are in high fire danger and must abide by Stage 1 fire restrictions, effective Sept. 27. Restrictions switch to Stage 2 restrictions on Sept. 30. The state is also burdened with a relatively heavy fuel load after two years of ample rain. New Jersey Herald (Newton, N.J.), Sept. 26, 2019
