One wildfire out, one growing rapidly

Update: 3:45 p.m.

PALM BAY, Fla., March 15, 2017 -- A wildfire near Canaveral Marshes Conservation Area has been extinguished but a second fire at Seminole Ranch Conservation Area has grown to 450 acres, according to St. Johns River Water Management District officials.

District staff are working with the Florida Forest Service to assess the fire and determine whether they will back burn about 4,000 acres to extinguish the blaze. Winds are erratic.

To date, rainfall trends for 2017 have been below average with future predictions for similar trends, creating conditions favorable to wildfire.

Additional information will be shared as it becomes available. Please contact Ed Garland at 321-676-6612 with any media inquiries.
