I think wildfire and forest fire are pretty
interchangeable in the east. A quick google search
found a number of offical NJ state sites that refer to
"wildfires" or "wildland fires". In addition The
following quote from a commentary by NJ Assemblyman
Steve Corodemus uses both "wildfire" and 'forest

"Spring weather conditions such as high wind and
higher temperatures coupled with low humidity can spur
wildfires. The danger rises dramatically between March
15 and May 15, which is the critical forest fire
period, and residents and visitors must take extra
precautions during these months."

Also, Smokey the Bear admonishes "Only you can prevent
forest fires."
