New Jersey fire leaving ash in the East Village

Apparently New Jersey is on fire... as this photo via ANIMAL New York shows... (photo taken on the West Side...)


Anyway, multiple readers have noted ash falling from the blaze near East Rutherford falling around here...

Saw ash falling on 12th and A. Could see smoke but thought it was west village. Must be some fire.

A bunch of us were wondering what those big black leaf-shaped things might be; I crushed one with my shoe & ash. This reminds me of the Bay Area Oakland/Berkeley HIlls fire, which sent ashes across the bay into San Francisco.

Actually, it was even worse a couple of weeks ago.
The exact same kind of ash was everywhere! I saw it all around downtown in greater quantity than I saw today. But I have no idea where it was coming from at that time.

Ah, the flames from the riots obviously prompted by this news:

Huh, and I just thought some kind of nasty tree was wilting near my building. Come to think of it now, that makes absolutely no sense since it's spring, but hey...

ubiquitious NJ bashing aside, there was a massive fire raging in Staten Island too, due to dry winde conditions which are oblivious to imaginary state boundaries.
