We are getting reports of a large brush fire about four miles south of Walt Disney World this morning. The fire is currently 90% contained but it is making driving conditions very smoky on I-4 close to exit 62. To give some perspective, Walt Disney World is located on exits 64 through 67 on I-4. The fire originated near Interstate 4 and State Road 417 just north of the Champions Gate Community but quickly spread.

The “Triangle Fire”, as authorities have named it, is close to 80 acres and started last night. Firefighters working through the night were able to get it 80% contained but the smoke is still causing low visibility for drivers this morning. The Florida Highway Patrol is urging drivers to be careful on I-4, S.R. 417, and U.S. 192.
