Brooklyn Residents Smell Fire for Hours Early Monday Morning

Brooklynites reported the strong smell of fire from midnight to 2:45 a.m. or later Monday morning. McBrooklyn can smell it in Brooklyn Heights, and residents of Bensonhurst, Bushwick and Staten Island report smelling it, too.

The city confirms the smell is from a fire in New Jersey.

According to SILive, approximately 30 acres of the park burned on Sunday.

Smoke could be seen for miles, said NBC 10 Philadelphia. Crews dropped water on the fire from airplanes and used backfires to contain the fire, and the fire did not threaten structures or people, the report noted, adding how the fire started is under investigation.
