Breaking News On Wildfires 

By Ann Kelly


A 120 acre brush fire in Starkey Park in Pasco County is only 2% contained at this time, and as a result the park is  closed. There is also a voluntary evacuation order for the Bexley Ranch Subdivision at this time. The bike trail is also closed. For more check the Pasco County Twitter feed.

More brush fires in Hillsborough County have shut down the northbound lanes of 75 with all traffic exiting at Fowler, as well as closing Flatwoods. The Suncoast Parkway is not a good alternate route, since the fire is spreading and it may be shut down as well.
