Smokey conditions from 700 acre fire
The smell of smoke in Alachua County is expected to stay, at least for now. WUFT-FM’s Briana Rittersporn says winds are bringing in smoke from a fire in the east.
Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Ludie Bond says the fire could continue to smolder for weeks, or even months. The cause of the fire is undetermined at this time.
