Eagle’s Nest Fire Under Investigation

The Eagle’s Nest Fire is 95% contained as of Wednesday evening, March 7.  The cause of the fire is yet to be determined but there were no prescribed fires or lightning strikes in the area at the time of the blaze. We are looking into this as a human caused fire.   The Florida Forest Service is urging extreme caution in regard to outdoor burning and would ask that residents refrain from burning yard debris at this time. The fact that the area of I-10 at Avalon Blvd. received significant rain over this past weekend and three days later a wildfire erupts, shows how fire prone our ecosystem is and quickly a small fire can turn into a large fire.
