DAYTONA BRUSH FIRE
It has been hot and dry in Florida.  A number of brush fires have been
battled across the state.  This fire in Daytona Beach on April 6, 2018
was south of Beville Road, west of Williamson Rd. and east of I-95
in a thickly wooded area. The fire burned toward I-95 and consumed
approximately 36 acres.  The smoke was such a hazard that I-95 was
closed for hours creating massive traffic issues as crews continued
to work the fire into the night.

Early in the fire, S. Williamson Blvd.
