A debris fire at Wood Resources Recovery, 10606 State Road 121 in Gainesville, continues to produce smoke that could affect visibility on SR 121 and U.S. 441, the Florida Highway Patrol announced Tuesday afternoon.

FHP is urging motorists to use caution when traveling in the area. Visibility may deteriorate quickly if fog and smoke combine, especial at night time and in the early morning hours.

This threat to motorists is expected to remain into next week.
