Around 2100, Station 6-1 was dispatched to the area of Kings Highway and Plantation drive for a rubbish fire, reported to be a trash can on fire. Crews arrived to find a small fire on the side of the roadway. Crews stretched a booster line and extinguished the fire. It was determined after the fire went out that it was fireworks display that had caught fire.
Thorofare VFC reminds you to use extreme caution when using fire works. Only some fireworks such as sparklers and other novelties are now legal in NJ, aerial fireworks are still illegal without proper permits. Please see the attached flyer from the Gloucester County Fire Marshals Office for further info.
