From time to time, we go to Orlando to check our rentals. It's just less than an hour drive but, we don't go there often. Anyway, it was rush hour so; instead of routing Colonial Drive, we choose the 528 to avoid the traffic. The sky signaled for a bad storm coming in fact, lightning was terrifying. Before we reach the first toll booth, we saw a thick smoke at a far distance. We thought there was a bad accident.
Then as we get closer, we realized that it was a brush fire and it just started. We saw flames.
This is the first time that I saw a brush fire in Florida. It was scary!
In split second, the brush fire ignited. According to the news, the fire was about 3 acres. We saw firetrucks but, it was difficult to access. The good thing was that, a big storm is coming and it helped put out the fire!
My guess was, this fire could have started with lightning strike. No confirmation yet!
