Florida Brush Fire Continuous

Florida forestry officials report 103 fires continue to burn across nearly 25,000 acres Wednesday.

One of the larger fires continues to burn in the everglades in northwestern Broward County.

That fire alone has consumed over 4,000 acres of remote grassland.

Governor Jeb Bush declared a state of emergency on Monday, and President Bush saw the fires first hand on Tuesday as part of his 3 day tour of the state

A number of traffic accidents are being blamed on smoke and fog.

As a result, Florida is making interstate shutdowns a daily routine to ease the smoky threat.
