Smoke from 'huge fire' in Collier County drifts into Broward County
Massive brush fire burning at Big Cypress National Preserve
PEMBROKE PARK, Fla. – A massive brush fire in Collier County is sending smoke east to Broward County.
Nearly 22,000 acres have burned at the Big Cypress National Preserve, WZVN in Fort Myers reported.
"It's a huge fire," Florida Forest Service spokesman Scott Peterich told Local10.com.
Peterich said a northwest wind is causing the smoke from that fire to drift into Broward County.
The fire has been burning for more than a week.
Monica Pognon, a spokeswoman for Broward County's environmental services, said the air quality is good.
As of Wednesday, the fire was only 11 percent contained.
