After days of firefighting efforts, the massive wildfire in Bass River State Forest is now 100% contained, the New Jersey Forest Fire Service said Saturday.
The fire that broke out earlier in the week grew to over 5,000 acres, sending smoke for miles and creating hazy skies around the region. The smoke was so thick it closed the Garden State Parkway for a few hours due to visibility issues.
"The public is advised that smoke may be visible for an extended period while firefighters work to mop-up the wildfire," NJFFS said on Twitter. "Motorists traveling in the area should remain cautious of smoke."
In a news conference, NJFFS Chief Greg McLaughlin said the fire was 5,950 acres and that the service had fought nine major wildfires this year.
A "major" fire is anything over 100 acres, he said.

A massive wildfire that has been burning in Northern Michigan since Saturday afternoon is now 90% contained, the Michigan Department of Natural Resources said on Sunday night.
It comes as a team of 10 firefighters from the Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources arrived Sunday to help contain the fire.
While the fire is 90% contained, the DNR said the fire remains at about 2,400 acres, southeast of Grayling.
“The crews were working in hilly, sandy terrain and that was difficult,” said Mike Janisse, Incident Commander of the Michigan DNR Incident Management Team supporting the fire. “Weather conditions also were hot, dry and windy.”
Fire risks have been high throughout the state for the past few weeks due to hot and dry weather conditions.
The fire started around 1 p.m. Saturday from a campfire on private property and burned through jack pines, mixed pines and forest land.
