In Pembroke Pines, Florida, the authorities claimed to have contained more than 60 percent of the large ongoing brush fire that is burning for several days in the region.
According to many officials, on Wednesday afternoon a fire occurred in the region of southwest Broadway County and it became so large that is spread all over the nearby places. As the days pass the fire grows more and more, and until Saturday, it has already deluged more than 5,500 acres of land in the Broadway County region.
Although no one still got hurt, because most of the places burnt were the farm fields, along with many mobile homes, which were hosed down by the firefighters. But, the situation prompts to evacuate a fish camp which was just on the edge of the Everglades region. On the other side, the camp owner used an airboat to pack down a 60 to 80 feet fodder of vegetation to prevent the fire from getting closer to the firms. The firefighters also blocked the north side of the land to prevent the fire from reaching more of the nearby mobile homes.
On the other hand, a spokesperson for the Florida Forest Service said that the fire spread from the northern side of the county to and till now it has reached to the southern side, which has covered three to four miles along with the direction. It is still burning, but as per the forest department’s forecast as well as their strategy, it will take several hours to stop the fire 100 percent.
