100-Acre Brush Fire Causes Hazy Conditions Across Hernando County

HERNANDO – A 100-acre brush fire in the eastern part of Hernando County is causing smoky conditions as far west as the Gulf of Mexico.

911 dispatchers have received dozens of calls today regarding the haze but most reports were related to the Richloam Forest brush fire.

Florida Forestry Services has 6 bull dozers and 2 helicopters assisting resources on the ground in containing the fire.

Officials have not provided an estimate on the what percentage is contained but they are monitoring the situation.

There are no structures in danger at this time, according to officials.

Those with respiratory problems should remain indoors until the smoke has cleared.

We will bring more updates as they come available.
