Part of the Garden State Parkway in Lakewood was shutdown Tuesday because of a brush fire. Authorities believe the fire was sparked by an electrical wire.

Firefighters have contained the blaze, but about ten acres did burn. Portions of the southbound lanes were shutdown while crews doused the flames.

We are in the height of forest fire season, and conditions were very dry today.
