VOLUSIA COUNTY, Fla. – A large wildlife in Volusia County is kicking up a lot of smoke, and the Florida Highway Patrol is urging drivers to be careful.

The fire is in the Tiger Bay State Forest, along I-4 north of State Road 44 in DeLand. No homes are in danger and no roads are closed, according to the Florida Forest Service.

The fire is about 70 acres in size and is about 60% contained.

Troopers issued a travel advisory for motorists in the area for I-4 and for International Speedway Boulevard because of the smoke.
