The Florida Highway Patrol is monitoring a section of Interstate 10 in Columbia county for smoke and fog visibility issues from a controlled burn.

Officials say the 14-mile area is from mile marker 297 to mile marker 311. The 300-acre controlled burn is north of the interstate near Falling Creek Road, FHP said Monday morning.

The FHP also said motorists should use caution because visibility could deteriorate quickly if smoke and fog combine, especially during night and early morning hours.

Drivers should reduce their speed and use low-beam headlights to adjust to changing weather conditions, officials said.
