SCOTTSMOOR, Fla. -

Fog and smoke from several brush fires caused three car crashes near Orlando this past weekend.

Florida Highway Patrol troopers were forced to shut down I-95 between State Road 44 and State Road 46, due to poor visibility.

The fog was so dense; it caused three car crashes on the road all within one mile of each other.

One of the crashes involved five vehicles and caused a car fire.

Several people were injured, but the victims are expected to be OK.

The roads were later reopened.

Three brush fires, including a 150-acre fire in Lake Ashby Park, were burning near the Interstate.
