    A police officer, fire fighters, emergency volunteers and a company employee were treated after they were exposed to smoke and fumes. Ten people were treated after being exposed to "hazardous material" at a Wayne-area plastics corporation early Sunday morning, police said. At 5:40 a.m, police responded to a call of a fire alarm and smoke conditions at Saint-Gobain Performance Plastics on Dey Road, Wayne Police Capt. Laurence Martin said in a statement.  The fumes and smoke came from the manufacturing of Polytetrafluoroethylene, which is better known as Teflon -- a compound used in creating non-stick cookware.

  • Jailed bear hunt protester reading Thoreau, ready to go homeJailed bear hunt protester reading Thoreau, ready to go home

    Bill Crain is serving a 15-day jail sentence following his 8th civil disobedience conviction Watch video Bill Crain's 15-day sentence is almost up. Crain, an anti-hunt activist jailed for an act of civil disobedience, is doing his time reading Henry David Thoreau, trying to maintain his vegan diet and chatting with other inmates who know about his widely-publicized advocacy against the bear hunt. "They don't agree, all of them, but they say they respect what I'm doing," Crain said in a 10-minute telephone interview Friday from the Sussex County jail in Newton. The 74-year-old City College of New York psychology professor has been convicted eight times since 2005 for engaging in civil disobedience during the hunt.  He pleaded guilty Dec. 20 to obstructing the administration of law, two months after exiting the designated protest area in Fredon and walking across the street to a hunters' check station, and reported to the jail Jan. 2. Crain spent just over a week in the same jail in January 2017. His attorney said Crain is scheduled to be released on Sunday after serving 12 days. He will be getting out two days before Phil Murphy, who has said he will halt the hunt pending additional research, is sworn in as governor. Asked about a report, released Thursday, from state wildlife officials asserting that the bear population will double by 2022 without a hunt, Crain said that argument is irrelevant to his contention that the hunt simply is wrong. "I think each bear's life is precious," Crain said. "If the human population would increase dramatically in that time, nobody would think of thinning the human population, killing humans. Fundamentally, the bears want to live as much as we do," Crain said. Crain said he has a cell to himself. He was unable to see or hear a rally held by his supporters outside the jail on Sunday but was allowed three visitors. He said he is being treated well in jail, complaining only that it is a little cold. "They try their best to do a vegan diet," Crain said. Crain, as he did during his first jail stint, has been doing a lot of reading. His wife of 50 years, Ellen Crain, sent him a book, "Thoreau's Animals," in which the 19th century essayist and philosopher detailed his encounters with animals by his Massachusetts home. "I've been working on a book on the value of retaining our childhood outlook -- our first outlook as as child, sensitivity to nature," said Crain, explaining that he is using Thoreau's work as inspiration. On Sunday, Ellen Crain will again be making the two-hour drive to the jail from their animal sanctuary farm in Dutchess County, N.Y. She joined him in court Dec. 20 for his guilty plea. In addition to his 15-day jail sentence, Crain was fined $2,500. His first six convictions were resolved with fines. If the hunt stops, as Murphy has said, so too will the recurring arrests that have brought Crain so much attention -- and also resulted in him spending time in jail, a long way from home. In court, Crain alluded to Murphy's opposition to the hunt, telling the judge -- the same judge who sent him to jail last winter -- that he probably wouldn't see him next year. The judge quipped in response that Crain should just send a postcard. "I don't have any regrets," Crain said of getting arrested so many times. "I wanted to emphasize how deeply I feel and how necessary it is to protect other living things," Crain said. Rob Jennings may be reached at rjennings@njadvancemedia.com.

  • Thousands without power in N.J. after substation issueThousands without power in N.J. after substation issue

    JCP&L and PSE&G customers were affected in several counties Update: Widespread power outages leave parts of N.J. in dark. Here's why About 22,000 homes and businesses are without power in several towns in North Jersey after a Jersey Central Power & Light substation issue and weather-related problems, officials said. Most of the outages are in Morris, Sussex and Union counties with nearly JCP&L 15,000 without lights as of 8:25 a.m, spokesman Ron Morano said. Crews are out working to restore power after a second outage took place, according to Morano.  Earlier, JCP&L spokesman Scott Surgeoner said the total outages had dropped to 1,000 and crews were still looking into the cause. Byram, Berkeley Heights, and the Mount Olive/Roxbury area are among the most affected. Byram schools are closed Friday.  PSE&G has about 6,000 customers in the dark as of 8:30 a.m. due to the weather, according spokeswoman Deann Muzikar. The majority of the affected PSE&G customers are in Bergen, Essex and Passaic. There have been no transformer explosions. Meanwhile, Lodi police said a transformer issue in the area of Baldwin Avenue has knocked out power to homes and some traffic lights. Officers are re-directing traffic.  The JCP&L issue at the substation occurred around 5:30 a.m., Surgeoner said "We're trying to determine the cause of the substation issue, but restoring power to our customers is our top priority," Surgeoner said. He added JCP&L has "no reports of any explosions" for transformers. Only one substation is affected, Surgeoner said. He declined to disclose where the substation is located, citing security reasons.  The number of outages have fluctuated throughout the morning. Loading... Several schools also have delayed openings. The County College of Morris says it will have a delayed opening at 9 a.m. due to a power outage. Wilson School in Lodi will open at 9:30 a.m. because of what officials called a power issue. Hawthorne High School also has a 90 minute delayed opening, while Mountain Park School in Berkeley Heights will open two hours late.  Meanwhile, a transformer fire and downed wires closed Route 70 west in Cherry Hill for a few hours. The road has since been reopend. It's not clear if that problem was related Downed wires/Transformer fire on Rte.70 WB, west of I-295 (Cherry Hill) all lanes closed and detoured. Use caution, expect delays. -- NJDOT (@NJDOT_info) January 12, 2018 Editor's note: This story and headline has been updated to reflect changing numbers as power is being restored through the morning.
