Fires at Orange, Lake, and Seminole Counties Produce Smoke and Ash

Seminole County is experiencing the most severe impact due to shifting winds.  Authorities say the fire will help with "various land management goals."

The Seminole County Fire Department has received 911 reports reporting smoke and ash in Altamonte Springs, Forest City, Longwood, and Wekiwa Springs.

Because the wind varies, officials are advising locals not to contact 911 to report any smoke they see.

Please call 911 if thick flames or smoke are visible.
