A 200-acre brush fire in Lee County near Corkscrew Road broke out Wednesday afternoon.

According to Florida Forest Service, the fire is 65% contained, with seven tractor-plow units and local fire departments at the scene.

The brush fire is not a threat to any structures for the time being, and there are no evacuations in place right now.

Florida Forestry Services said though there are no structures or homes in danger, people who live nearby may notice smoke.

Estero Fire Rescue said it will drift through the area.

People living nearby and all the way out to the interstate may see or smell it.

Anyone with breathing difficulties should keep their windows closed and stay inside.

Crews are working to plow lines around the fire to keep it from spreading.
