I-95 reopens after residual smoke prompts shutdown
BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
A portion of Interstate 95 in Brevard County has reopened after smoky conditions prompted the Florida Highway Patrol to close a portion of the roadway Thursday morning.
Brevard Fire said they were not working any wildfires. But authorities in adjacent Indian River County said residual smoke from a controlled burn Wednesday in the Sebastian Buffer Preserve caused the FHP to close a portion of I-95.
The highway was shut down between southbound mile marker 173 (Malabar Road) to northbound mile marker 156 (County Road 512).
Troopers caution that there is still smoke in the area.
