Four days after officials announced firefighters knocked down a massive brush fire on Big Pine Key that burned 72 acres of the Lower Key that is home to the largest population of endangered key deer and a population of people still reeling from Hurricane Irma, flames flared up again Friday night.
At least seven Monroe County Fire Rescue trucks were working on the fire, according to radio dispatch traffic. Adam Linhardt, spokesman for the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office, said the fire was located at 24 Lane and Wilder Road.
Big Pine residents were just beginning to recover from the large brush fire that began Sunday afternoon, April 22 and was put out April 30.
This is a developing story.
