ESTERO, Fla.- A brush fire in a preserve area continues to grow and firefighters can only stand and watch. It is burning south of Corkscrew Road near the Wildcat Run Country Club.
The 50 acre fire is not threatening any homes. Wednesday night, Estero firefighters staged themselves on a side street, unable to get to the fire about a half a mile south of where they are located.
The smoke and flames are so thick, brush trucks can't get back to the fire. Easterly winds didn't make it any easier on crews. Forestry officials tell WINK news, four bulldozers are fighting the flames.
Fire crews will be on scene all night monitoring the brush fire and will try to fight the flames again friday morning.
