Another New Jersey wildfire burned in the southern half of the state Sunday night.
The New Jersey Forest Fire Service was battling a wildfire in Manchester and Woodland Townships inside Brendan T. Byrne State Forest.
As of Sunday night, the fire had burned over 120 acres, it had not been contained and was threatening seven structures.
The fire service said no roads were closed.
This fire happened just one week after a wildfire burned more than 13,000 acres at Wharton State Forest in Burlington County.
Officials said it was started by a campfire that wasn't supposed to be burning.
The fire has since been contained and recreation areas are open again. However, there are some trails and activities still closed.
