The Florida Forest Service reports that 10,000 acres have burned so far.

There is no word on what caused the fire.

Smoke from the fire is impacting western Broward. Light ash has fallen Coral Springs, Plantation, and Weston. People with respiratory issues should take care.

South Florida has been dealing with extremely dry and hot conditions over the past few days. There is a chance those conditions played a part.
