Big Cypress National Preserve
Much of South Florida woke to another smoky, hazy morning thanks to a wildfire burning in the Big Cypress National Preserve in Collier County.
The smell of smoke is in the air in southwest Broward and portions of Miami-Dade County.
A wildfire in the Big Cypress National Preserve, sparked last week by a lightning strike, has consumed more than 16-thousand acres.
The endangered Florida Panther remains under attack with 23 of the rare cats being killed in 2010, according to the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission.
