FHP warns of smoke between I-75, I-10
COLUMBIA COUNTY, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol is monitoring the area of I-75 north of the I-10 interchange to the 455-mile marker because of light smoke in the vicinity.
The U.S. Forest Service is conducting a 500-acre prescribed burn in the Osceola National Forest.
FHP said visibility may deteriorate quickly due to smoke/fog type conditions especially during the evening and early-morning hours.
Motorists are reminded to reduce their speed, maintain a safe traveling distance from other vehicles and utilize low-beam headlights to adapt to rapid-changing weather conditions.
