Wildfires can be frightening, disruptive, and deadly. Although for some reason people are fascinated.

We had many people stopping and taking pics of the fire as it burned through Wharton State Forest.

Thankfully there were no reported injuries and the local firefighters were gaining control as every hour passed.

Check out these pics submitted by our listeners through the free New Jersey 101.5 app.

Remember, you can download the app on your phone and listen to the show from ANYWHERE in the world. You can also contact us directly through the chat feature. Producer Kristen will respond to your inquiries during the show.

If you or your friends live on the edge of our broadcast area, North Bergen, Passaic, and Sussex for sure, please download the app.

For now, check out these pics.
