Brush fire in North Fort Myers

Fire season is in full swing. Investigators are looking into several brush fires Thursday.

There are arson investigations open related to recent fires in Lee County.

North Fort Myers Fire Control & Rescue Service District won’t say if the fire Thursday was started by a person.

“They are located near each other,” said Christi Kulwicki with the fire district. “We want to take all the precautionary and get down to the nitty gritty to see what’s causing this.”

The fire district reminds people to be careful, as grass and vegetation is dry and can easily catch fire. If winds are high, that could easily move fire around quick.
