County Line Fire continues to wreak smoke havoc on North Central Florida
The County Line Fire is so extreme at this hour, firefighters will be working the maximum length federal guidelines require, and that means up to 16 hours at a time. Dry conditions and strong changing winds are pushing the smoke in and out of areas all around North Florida, and officials warn it can come at residents when they least expect it. Florida’s 89.1, WUFT-FM’s Katiana Krawchenko traveled up to the fire line and reports on how firefighters are dealing with the blaze.
