Florida on Fire

It’s forestry officials’ worst fear and the threat is growing. The Florida Forest Service is warning residents living near preserves or in rural communities, particularly those west of I-95 about the danger. The agency’s Fire Danger Index shows high risk for fire in Indian River and Broward counties and moderate risk in Martin, St. Lucie, Palm Beach and Okeechobee counties. Melissa Yunace, a fire mitigation specialist with the Florida Forest Service told news partner CBS12, that they are starting to see a pattern of wildfires happening every single day along the Treasure Coast. Fire officials have stopped authorizing controlled burns for now. The warning comes after more than 15-brush fires on the Treasure Coast in just the last week alone.
