Police: Fire at former resort started by brush burning

(04/09/12) ELLENVILLE - Authorities say a weekend fire that razed the old Tamarack Lodge on Route 52 in Ellenville was started by man burning brush.

Officials say 300 firefighters from surrounding areas, including Orange County, responded on Saturday to put out the flames. The lodge and 30 other buildings were destroyed. More than 18 people living in some small bungalows on the property are now homeless.

Officials say there is a no burn ban that has been in effect from last month through May 15, and also a red flag warning has been issued by the National Weather Service because of the dry weather. They say the fire qualifies as arson because the blaze does appear to be intentionally set with a reckless sense.

Police say the have made no arrests yet, but are investigating a few people of interest.

The property is owned by the Western Mohegan Tribe who filed for bankruptcy last month.

Yeah, the cool is there, maybe seasonal at best. The coastal and below normal temps are not going to happen for the MidAtl as was depicted by models last week. As you said, cool temps, compared to the 60s/70s we had the past couple weeks, for the next couple days but above normal temps and little precip looks to be the case late week into next week.
We need rain bad and the only possible decent precip, except for an occassional shower, I see is two weeks away. sad.gif

I'm still seeing below average temps this week... certainly not a "cold" spell, but still definitely below average for most of the region, for several days for some parts of the region and at least one day for others.

The rain is certainly a problem though as you mentioned... the models have exaggerated coastal development in several cases under this pattern and this was one of them, and the GFS also apparently overestimated the scattered showers for this week, which it showed what appeared to be moderate rain squalls across most of the region.

The next rain potential is around Sunday/Monday, with the next warm surge (hint - stronger and longer lasting cutoff from the offshore low development on Thu/Fri with a weaker and shorter lasting "warm spell"? My gut tells me so). IF the warmth ends up strong and further north, not much rain would probably be associated with it, and windy conditions may be a problem again while the region is in the warm sector. If it ends up further south and colder, so will the rains associated with the northern boundary of the warmth, but this potential appears to be limited to the northern Mid Atlantic and parts of the Northeast, and even the northern MA is looking marginal at this time. As much as I like warmth, I'm hoping that we finally get some decent rains over the next few weeks, which at this trend may be hard to get.

Winds will be a huge factor in the NE and MA today.......with that huge LP to the north expect 40 to 50 gusts in the region, which not help any fire efforts today....... sad.gif


[attachment=161287:njwxnet_windspmax.png]

How are the winds (and any rain, which my guess would be that rain barely fell) ending up so far today? The internet is a little slow here and some of my usual weather links aren't loading (but the plus side is that spending the week in Peru for vacation, it's warm weather on the surface while there's still snow on the mountains laugh.gif )

Thanks... those wind reports don't look good. Fortunately the rest of the week shouldn't be as windy, hopefully the rain actually does verify.

And thanks about the second part! I hadn't seen "snow" for so long that I almost mistakened it to be rocks laugh.gif

Every day lately there's another fire. This is today's big fire here in Berks county. There was another one this morning.

Forest fire nears fireworks factory; evacuations ordered

UNION TWP., Pa. -

A forest fire in the French Creek State Park has prompted the mandatory evacuations of nearby residents.

The fire was first reported Monday afternoon in the 500 block of Fire Tower Road in Union Twp., Berks Co. Firefighters from several surrounding municipalities have since been called in to help fight the flames.

A 69 News crew on the scene reports that much of the fire is in the wooded area of French Creek, but crews are taking steps to keep it from spreading to the nearby International Fireworks factory at 240 Sycamore Rd.

The township, according to its website, has ordered people who live on Sycamore, Salaneck, Shed and Red Corner roads to evacuate their homes.

An emergency shelter has been established for the evacuees at the Immaculate Conception social hall, 905 Chestnut St., in Birdsboro.

A burn ban for the township is also in effect until further notice.

So far, there have been no reports of injuries.

State officials say French Creek #brushfire 'moving rapidly' eastward. Bulldozers used to protect 'threatened' homes on St. Peter's Road.

Already, French Creek #brushfire has burned more than 1,000 acres and forced the evacuation of more than 100 homes.

Press conference on French Creek #brushfire reveals fire still "uncontrolled," but hopes are high it will be contained by early morning.

Wow even though this weather is not a snowstorm or severe weather outbreak it still is very exciting to follow. I can now add one to two more brush fires for my county bringing the totla to 6 for the year. It started on Feb 22-23 with a 20 acre forest fire near Anthonys nose which is on the county border with westchester. March 8th a local soccer field had a brush fire and according to a friend who's a member of that areas Fire Dept it was about the size of a football field so about 1.5 or so acres. On March 20 a brush fire occured in Brewster and March 27th 5 acres burned in Patterson. Sunday a mulch fire occured but am not sure if that is related to the dry weather and yesturday another small mulch fire occured and it was related to dry and windy conditions. Luckly no damage has occured by me to anything other then grass and woods. LI and New Jersey are defuently the hardest hit areas so far so hoping things get better for them.
