Multiple brush fires in the Florida Everglades were continuing to bring smoky conditions to Broward and Palm Beach Saturday.

More than 22,000 acres had been burned by Saturday morning from the three brush fires, according to the Florida Forest Service.

RAW: Footage shows a large brush fire burning in the Florida Everglades in Broward County on May 6, 2022.

One fire was burning in Broward west of Interstate 75, and the other two were in the Everglades near the Broward-Palm Beach county line.

Winds were expected to pick up and turn more westerly over the weekend, which will most likely allow the fires to grow and push more smoke across Broward and Palm Beach counties.
