Firefighters contain Long Branch fire


LONG BRANCH, N.J. (AP) — Officials are hoping rain will help extinguish a stubborn fire at the Long Branch Recycling Facility.

Firefighters contained the four-alarm blaze in a 150-foot-by-75-foot pile of brush on Wednesday. But it continued to smolder throughout the night.

Public Works chief Fred Migliaccio tells the Asbury Park Press (http://on.app.com/19G3b5u ) the recycling center was not damaged and no one was injured.

The fire is under investigation.
