LEE COUNTY, Fla.- A mulch fire that broke out Sunday could burn for several more days. Huge plumes of smoke still cover parts of Lee County.
At Coastal Grinding, off Thomas and Old U.S. 41, the biggest concern continues to be thick smoke. There are three agencies on the scene on day two of this fire fight, and they're anticipating this situation to last through at least the middle of the week.
Kevin Buress of the San Carlos Park Fire told us, "Crews are keeping the fire in check, making sure it doesn't spread beyond this compound and we're taking apart these piles of mulch trying to get down to where it's burning."
Buress continued, "It just takes a lot of man power to move all the debris and open it up and cool it, take care of it...It's a mess."
