Tallahassee, Florida - December 30, 2012
The Florida Highway Patrol is monitoring the areas of SR-51 and CR-357 in LaFayette County for smoke/fog visibility issues.
The Forest Service says during the night a wild fire broke out that reduced visibility to one half of a mile. The fire is out with a few hot spots remaining.
Motorists are urged to use caution when traveling in these areas. Visibility may deteriorate quickly due to smoke/fog type conditions especially during the night time and early morning hours.
Motorists are reminded to reduce their speed and utilize low beam headlights in order to adapt to changing weather conditions.
