A 50-acre brush fire was sending heavy smoke and flames into the air in south Miami-Dade County Tuesday evening near Homestead.
The fire is burning in the area of Southwest 117th Avenue and Southwest 344th Street and may cause smokey driving conditions, according to WSVN.
The fire, dubbed the Turkey West Fire, comes as South Florida deals with very dry conditions. Early Tuesday morning smoke from a brushfire shut down a stretch of Alligator Alley.
Forestry officials said the Turkey West Fire is growing and that they have 3 units on the scene and an airplane flying overhead to monitor the progress.
