    Forest fire burns thousands of acres in New Jersey Pinelands

    Authorities say fire whipped by high winds has spread over thousands of acres of state land in New Jersey's Pine Barrens, a forested area of coastal plain that stretches more than 1 million acres.State environmental protection department officials say the blaze was reported Saturday afternoon in Penn State Forest in Woodland Township.
    Department spokesman Larry Hajna (HAY-nah) said Sunday afternoon the blaze had grown to 10,000 acres (40 sq. kilometers) with about 75 percent containment. Officials said plumes of smoke were visible from as far as Freehold, about 40 miles (64 kilometers) away.
    Hajna says a portion of Route 72, the main road across the Pinelands, has been closed. No homes or businesses are endangered and no injuries or mandatory evacuations have been reported. The cause of the blaze is under investigation.

    According to government's own numbers, over half a MILLION people are dead, just in the US alone, because of a man made virus designed to be even more deadly than what would be found in nature, released, possibly on purpose, from a Chinese lab, a virus that that was created from funding and prior research given to the Chinese scientists by our own government because we, in fit of sanity, pulled the plug on funding here.

    I was in Whiting yesterday, visiting family. My aunt said that the fire started on Saturday because authorities were burning brush in the Pine Barrens so it wouldn't start a forest fire. The winds on Saturday blew the controlled burning into the real thing. Those authorities look really intelligent after this, probably why they are still determining the source of the fire.

    I thought Corey Booker was the Jersey Devil.

    Has anyone ruled out whether or not he had anything to do with starting the fire?
