FORT MYERS, Fla. - A swiftly moving fire kept fire fighters from several fire stations busy Saturday evening. The blaze which is still under investigation scorched 15 acres of land according to Florida Forset Service. No word on how the fire started. The State Fire Marshall is investigating. Residents in the Cypres Cove and Sail Harbor communities were out with garden hoses trying to soak nearby palm trees to keep the flames at bay. Fortunately, the flames never came close enough to their homes to do any damage - but were close enough to give everyone a good scare.
