Brush Fire and Fog Cause 50-Car Pileup

Weather conditions across Florida on Wednesday caused a 50-car pileup and killed three people. Dense smoke left from a brush fire combined with fog to cause a soupy mix across the landscape in the area between Tampa and Orlando. A 15 mile stretch of highway between the two cities was closed by the chain reaction even. The fire was started as a controlled burn but then grew out of control. Some officials were concerned about the decision to start a fire during dry conditions. So far the fire has burned nearly 400 acres in the central part of Florida.
