Wildfires cause major backup on Florida highway

DELTONA, FL (WCMH) — Fire crews say 275 acres of land have been blackened by a wildfire in Orange City, Florida on Saturday.

WESH reports vehicles are backed up for miles, as the fire is burning next to I-4. Multiple crews from Volusia County, DeBary, Deltona, Orange City, and the Florida Forest Service are battling 3 fires in the area.

The Orange City Fire deputy chief said the fire is contained, but the wind has shifted and smoke can make for hazardous driving conditions.
