Traffic: I-95 reopens in Volusia after brush fire

Interstate 95 has reopened after being closed for about 7 hours because of a brush fire, officials say. Motorists should still expect to see lots of smoke in the area as the fire smolders. The fire was about 14 acres. Motorists reported seeing smoke just after 2 p.m. Friday. When firefighters arrived, they saw a column of smoke moving toward the interstate. The fire jumped the interstate about 2:30 p.m. About 20 firefighters battled the blaze. The fire was contained by about 5 p.m., officials said, with firefighters putting out hot spots. The cause of the fire is under investigation. sallen@oralndosentinel.com or 407-420-5417.
