Florida wildfire shuts down busy highway, has grown to more than 400 acres

SHARE


Florida firefighters are still trying to control a now 400-acre wildfire outside the Jacksonville area.

Firefighters have been battling the large fire for two days now.

The wildfire has crept close enough to I95 to force Florida Highway Patrol to close off a small section of the busy highway.

According to Action News Jax, the Yellow Bluff wildfire is only 25% contained and investigators are unsure how it was started.

The Florida Forest Service is attacking the wildfire both on the ground and in the air.

In all, four wildfires started in Northern Florida within the last couple of days.
