Gov. Charlie Crist declared a state of emergency after more wildfires ignited across parched Florida.
Crist's order said 15 wildfires covering 1,400 acres ignited yesterday and more than 90 percent of the state was experiencing drought.
Officials says no injuries have been reported in any of the fires.
As of yesterday evening, 95 wildfires were active in Florida and they have consumed more than 11,000 acres so far. From January 1 to May 2, a total of nearly 1,900 blazes had consumed more than 161,000 acres in Florida.
One of the largest fires was blazing in swampy, uninhabited land on the border of Volusia and Flagler counties in central Florida. It ignited Tuesday and has burned 2,200 acres. It was about 40 percent contained Thursday.
