Thanks to our hard working firefighters and emergency personnel, the 7,500 acre fire in Collier County is now 50% contained.
There is still a lot of work to be done, but thankfully the worst seems to be over. According to NBC2 “more than 120” state and county firefighters are working to help further contain the fire. 3 homes have been lost, and hundreds of acres have been scorched. Please pray that emergency personnel are able to quickly contain the fire before any more homes are destroyed.
An emergency hotline has been implemented for those with questions about the wildfire. The phone number is 239-252-8444 or dial 311 only if you’re in Collier County.
Wednesday morning, the mandatory evacuation was lifted, and all roads previously closed have been re-opened.
