FELLSMERE, Fla. (WSVN) — An unattended campfire is to blame for a brushfire that sparked in Central Florida, officials said.
Florida Forest Service and Indian River County Fire Rescue were back out on Saturday to contain the fire that broke out at a state park in Fellsmere, north of Vero Beach.
Officials believe the campfire was what started the blaze, Thursday night.
