Firefighters battle brush fire south of Gardens

Story Video: Click here

Firefighters were called to a brush fire near Palm Beach Gardens Friday afternoon.

It’s near Northlake Boulevard and east of 140th Avenue off Hamlin Boulevard.

By mid-afternoon flames had scorched 40 acres.

A small section of Northlake has been closed to traffic.

The Florida Forest Service says there is a lot of spotting and the fire is jumping around a lot. Due to dry conditions, it could be some time before it is brought under control.

The forest service has four firefighting bulldozers on scene.

So far, no homes have been threatened.
