NAPLES, Fla. — Campgrounds situated both north and south of Interstate 75 are being evacuated as winds have aided the spread of the Big Cypress fire.
Reportedly, the fire grew dramatically on Sunday and now consumes well over 8,300 acres of land.
The Florida Highway Patrol has been present along the interstate ensuring that visibility allows for safe passage across the alley. Motorists are advised to exercise additional caution across the middle of Alligator Alley as smoke shifts can occur quickly.
