Crews battle wildfire in Burlington County, New Jersey
BROWNS MILLS, N.J. - Fire crews in New Jersey are battling yet another wildfire as officials say a recent dry spell has helped allow wildfires to run rampant.Crews responded to the area of City Line Road in Browns Mills, Burlington County Friday afternoon for reports of a fire.SKYFOX was over the scene where smoke and flames could be seen emerging from a significant portion of the tree line. The New Jersey Forrest Fire Service asked residents to avoid the area and says their crews have responded to the scene to assess the situation. The fire comes as skies across the region finally began to clear after days of being impacted by smoke from wildfires burning in Canada.Earlier this week, firefighters were able to contain another wildfire in Jackson Township, New Jersey that burned 82 acres. Over the weekend, the Forest Fire Service announced complete containment of the 210-acre Flatiron wildfire blaze in Medford, Burlington County. That fire started just after midnight Friday and was burning toward 40 homes before crews managed to move the blaze away from the structures. Residents weren’t evacuated but were protected within their homes, some using garden hoses to help as crews worked in the backyards to conduct backfires and burnout operations, officials said.Last week crews stifled a wildfire that burned 5,000 acres in Bass River State Forest which stretches across Ocean and Burlington counties in the Pinelands.

Unemployment rate rises for the 1st time since August amid ‘cracks’ in job market
unemployment rate rose to 5.2 per cent in May, Statistics Canada said Friday, a sign of weakening in the country’s tight labour market that will help inform the Bank of Canada’s future interest rate decisions.Employment overall was little changed in the month, the agency said, with a modest 17,000 jobs lost. Employment fell among youth aged 15-24 and rose among those aged 25-54.While part-time employment rose to the tune of 15,500 jobs in May, Canadian employers collectively cut 32,700 full-time positions, according to the report.The unemployment rate rose for the first time since August 2022, StatCan said, up from 5.0 per cent in April.The job report this morning comes after the Bank of Canada’s decision this week to raise its key interest rate target by a quarter of a percentage point to 4.75 per cent.In raising its key rate, the central bank said the labour market remains tight, reflecting continued strong demand for workers.“Some cracks appeared within the Canadian labour market in May, but these may not yet be wide enough to convince the Bank of Canada that inflation is about to meaningfully cool off,” said CIBC senior economist Andrew Grantham in a note to clients Friday morning.He suggested the weaker jobs figures might see markets scale back expectations of additional rate hikes to come, but the Bank of Canada’s policymakers may need to see “further softening” to convince them they can leave rate unchanged.Average hourly wages were up 5.1 per cent in May, continuing to outpace inflation.
