The four-alarm fire broke out yesterday afternoon in a 150-foot-by-75-foot pile of brush sending grey and white smoke into the sky that could be seen and smelled for miles around.  Firefighters with help from Red Bank, Union Beach and Rumson were not only to put the fire out but protect homes along nearby Sixth Avenue.

Union Beach also supplied foam to try and douse the flames. Water from the nearby Shrewsbury River was also used according to the Asbury Park Press.

Public Works chief Fred Migliaccio tells the Asbury Park Press the recycling center was not damaged and no one was injured.

The fire is under investigation.
