Controlled burn causing smoky conditions in North Central Florida

By

The Florida Forest Service is conducting a controlled burn at Island Grove, causing smoky conditions in Gainesville and parts of North Central Florida.

The controlled burn spans about 80 acres, said Art Forgey, spokesman for Alachua County Sheriff’s Office. Division officials indicated windy conditions would cause the smoke to spread into parts of North Central Florida, Forgey said.

There’s no word yet as to how long the smoky conditions will persist.
