Deepest fire

There’s a fire raging in the Big Cypress Swamp which, with a steady wind blowing out of the east, has cast a smoky haze across coastal-hugging Naples (25 miles distant) … and even more strangely – shut down Alligator Alley.

At last count Deep Fire (as it’s been named) has consumed 12,500 acres. That’s just shy of 20 square miles.

Here’s a short video clip of the wildfire and the traffic free interstate below, filmed Friday from a helicopter.
