Brush Fire caused by leaf blower

On Thursday November 21st, Fire District #1 was dispatched for a brush fire in the area of 13 Jensen Dr. Car 26 arrived within minutes and found an area of brush approximately 100′ X 200′ burning, apparently started when a lawn mower with a leaf blower attachment overturned down an embankment. The high winds at the time quickly spread the fire into some trees and an open field, in the direction of some homes located on Mettlers Lane. The fire was contained by District #1 companies with the assistance of New Jersey Forest Fire Service and South Bound Brook FD. No injuries or other property damage occurred.
