Wildfires – Florida, USA
More than 140 wildfires are burning in the state of Florida today.
It’s a “red flag warning” day in inland portions of West Central Florida today, which means high winds, no rain in sight and low humidity. Florida remains under a state of emergency because of a rash of wildfires, with a declaration from the governor last month.
The Brooksville office of the Florida Forest Service says nine of the current wildfires they’re monitoring are in Hernando and Pasco Counties, including a fire in Starkey Wilderness Preserve that has charred more than 2,000 acres.
