Wildfire Threatened Homes in Alachua County
A wildfire in North Central Florida burned overnight Thursday which put one community on watch. No evacuations were ordered but yesterday's flames came awfully close to homes in Cross Creek. Firefighters do not expect winds to be as strong Friday which they hope will prevent the fire from flaring up.
"We will still see some smoke because there is a lot of unburnt fuel in the interior of this fire," said Florida Division of Forestry's Ludie Bond.
