upper hand now on that brush fire in south jersey. yesterday on nbc 10 news at 4:00 we brought you live images of the brush fire at wharton state forest as it was burning out of control. nbc 10 south jersey bureau reporter cydney long has been talking to firefighters on the front line. >> even though they're making progress, the threat is still not over? >> reporter: jim and renee, that's right. remember, just because the fire is contained in a certain boundary, doesn't mean it is controlled. so there are still fires burning deep in the woods here in morton state forest. you can see the smoke has dissipated dramatically but the incident commander tells me the fire will burn for several more days until this hot and dry forecast changes dramatically. >> won't be cleared out until it rains. >> the intense flames that scorched some 700 acres thursday and overnight over a full square mile of the forest for the most
part are a done deal. but the hard work is not over. today, crews with the forestry service were scouting out the smallest of flames still going strong. >> it's on fire still. some of the logs are still burning. >> looked like a funnel cloud. >> for rose marie ellison, her son and granddaughter who are shoving off on a kayak, they thought the massive brush fire might ruin their mother's day weekend camping tradition. >> i didn't unpack the car right away. because i figured if i had to get out i didn't want to have to load up again. >> and now, there's a partial burning ban in effect campers showed us these warning fires. they are only allowed to use charcoal on an elevated grill. >> we purposely didn't build a fire because the wind was high, it's dry. and you kind of know even though they didn't tell us that it was you know not safe. so, no, we didn't build a fire. >> now, as far as the cause, we know that this fire in the
wharton state forest is not believed to be connected to a series of arson fires set in burlington county on monday. we do know from investigators that someone started it, but it's yet to be determined. if it was by accident or on purpose. live, nbc 10 news. >> questions continuing today about a police dash cam video that we showed you yesterday here on nbc 10 news at 4:00. of a dover police corporal kicking a suspect in the head. >> police released that video nearly two years after the incident and after the officer was criminally charged just recently. nbc 10 delaware bureau reporter tim furlong is back in dover today for us. >> tim, you've been asking law enforcement both present and past why has it taken so long for charges in this case? >> i'm doing my best to get those answers. you know it happened right here outside this gas station back in 2013. used to be a hess station back then. you're right. today i spent all my time trying to find out how in light of that
video, the corporal wasn't held accountable earlier than this week. by now, you've probably seen it the 2013 video of thomas webster stopping with keith dickerson during a crime investigation. you probably also saw this. corporal webster kicking him in the face and knocking him unconscious even after he complied with an order to get on the ground. nobody answered the door the a his home today. he's suspended without pay after being indicted earlier this week. late today, the u.s. attorney's office in wilmington would only tell me they did a preliminary review of the case. and while they did see the video, they for some reason did not do a formal investigation. the u.s. department of justice is now trying to figure out why that was. and dover police prepped for possible protest. an earlier grand jurory chose not
to indict him. only indictments are made public including the one here in my hand that was released this monday against officer webster. it is possible, in theory, that the first grand jury never saw the video at all. we're trying to get that answer. but, again, it's all done in secret. so nobody's, in theory supposed to leak what happens. we're live in dover, tim furlong, nbc 10 news. wilmington police could soon be wearing body cameras. the mayor today signed an executive order to immediately study how they can be used in wilmington. the cameras raised the level of transparency between officers and the communities they serve. and this comes after the federal government announced it's giving $20 million to police departments nationwide for those body cameras. federal jury is deliberating at this hour on corruption charges against six former philadelphia undercover narcotics officers. the men are accused of stealing $400,000 during drug raids, planting evidence and roughing up suspects. this is the second day
