Prescribed burns are ongoing throughout Florida, and if you are seeing smoke, today, this may be why.
There are several prescribed burns being conducted by the Florida Forest Service. There are also several large authorized open burns throughout the Central Florida area.
You can see all fires and burns in Florida on the Florida Forest Service website.
