On Thursday, March 9, a combined effort from the Clayton and Glassboro firefighters formed to assist the New Jersey Forest Fire Service in extinguishing a forest fire. Said forest fire broke out in the Glassboro Wildlife Management Area in a 30-mile area. Gloucester County and 9 others were facing gusty winds on Thursday and had previously placed under a wildfire alert, so the crews were prepared to jump into action. According to the Clayton Fire Company, crews had responded by 1 p.m. and the fire was extinguished by 7 p.m. Luckily the area contained a multitude of ponds and wetlands, which helped to contain the fire. No homes or people were endangered by the flames.
