LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A 180-acre brush fire that proved to be problematic for firefighters in Bonita Springs has been completely contained.
Crews are tackling three separate fires along a canal several miles north of Bonita Beach Road and east of Bonita Grande Drive.
The remote area of the fires is presenting quite a challenge for firefighters. Crews had to wait for the Department of Forestry to bring in tractors to clear out trees and carve out roads so that trucks can get to the fire.
Now, strong winds out of the northeast later Friday afternoon could become problematic.
There's at least one home and several barns in the area that would be threatened if the fire spreads south.
The brush fire jumped the fire lines Thursday late afternoon.
The fire started from an unknown source Wednesday at 5:15 p.m.
No homes are in danger and there have been no injuries to either firefighters or civilians.
