PALM BEACH COUNTY, Fla. (CBS 12) — A lightning strike caused more than 15,000 acres to burn in northern Broward County.
The Palm Beach County Fire Rescue says they've received calls about smoke in southern Palm Beach County from the fire.
The Florida Forestry says the fire is a little more than one mile north of I-75 and almost four miles west of US-27.
The Florida Highway Patrol said Monday night all lanes are open and visibility on the road is not affected. However, motorists should still be careful while traveling on I-75 and U.S. 27 in Broward, Palm Beach and Collier counties.
The smoke was so heavy it is registering on CBS12's Stormtrac radar.
