LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A mulch pile is burning near Alico Road, creating a huge plume of smoke in South Fort Myers.
The fire is burning at old U.S. 41 and Thomas Road.
No injuries have been reported and no structures are in danger.
San Carlos fire, Estero fire, and forestry officials are on scene.
They say the initial call came in as a brush fire at a mulch recycling plant just off Alico Road.
When firefighters arrived around 9 a.m., they discovered 2 mulch piles on fire, spreading from the wind.
Portions of Thomas Road are closed because of water lines across the street.
San Carlos Fire officials say it could take 2 days to fully extinguish.
The mulch piles are 60 feet high and 200 feet wide.
