Even though Heavy downpours early Sunday morning have finally brought some relief to Firefighters battling wild fires across the southern half of Florida, Fires continue to bun in the Gateway area.....Golden Gate Estates Brush Fire covered over 7,000 acres and is now only 65% contained

The sound of early morning raindrops was music to the ears of firefighters and forest officials in the area, but firefighters are asking the public to help in getting the rest of the fires out. If you see a log burning in the middle of a black burned out area, chances are that that is not a problem, but if you see fire running accross green or dried out fields, that needs to be reported.

The rain that did fall allowed the firefighters to go on the offensive and start to push back flames.
