OCALA - The Florida Highway Patrol is monitoring the northern portion of Interstate I-75 in north Marion County due to the possibility of smoke on the roadway.

The Division of Recreation and Parks is planning a 53-acre prescribed burn in the area of County Road 320 and CR 329 (Price's Scrub.) Motorists are urged to use caution when traveling in this area. Visibility may deteriorate quickly due to smoke/fog type conditions especially during the night and early morning hours.

Motorists are reminded to reduce speed and utilize low beam headlights to adapt to changing weather conditions.
