Wildfires close Florida highways
by UPI

ORLANDO, Fla. -- The Florida Highway Patrol closed 25 miles of Interstate 95 in Brevard County Sunday because of smoke from brush fires.

Northbound and southbound lanes are closed between Malabar Road and State Road 60 in Vero Beach, WOFL-TV in Orlando reported Sunday.

"You can barely see maybe 10 feet in front you. It's very risky to travel through this area at this time," said Highway Patrol Sgt. Charlie Thomas.

Officials said they expected the smoke could linger over the area.

"This section could be shut down for most of the night," Thomas said.
