Jacksonville, FL --- May 5, 2012
The US Forestry Service contacted the Florida Highway Patrol, Jacksonville Regional Communications Center on this date around 6:15 p.m. This was to advise of possible smoky conditions in the area of Interstate 95 between Jacksonville and the Georgia State Line during the night and early morning hours. This is due to the "County Line" brush fire west of Jacksonville and the prevailing west wind. Troopers will be assigned to proactively patrol the area and monitor the roadway for rapidly changing conditions in visibility. Motorists are encouraged to use caution if driving through the area overnight.
