Cold snap may complicate Prairie fire fight

By

As the cold front comes in tonight, conditions around the Levy Prairie Wildfire may worsen. Not only did the fire grow slightly overnight, but cooler winds will counteract any rain we may get. North Florida Wildfire Mitigation Specialist Ludie Bond says it’s hard to predict how long the fire will last.

Bond says drivers shouldn’t see any smoke on the roads today.
