Breaking News Update: Southbound traffic on I-95 affected by brush fire, lanes reopened

Two lanes of traffic are currently blocked off as Palm Beach County fire fighters battle a brush fire. If you will be traveling south this afternoon, your best bet would be to get off I-95 at PGA Boulevard and take Military south.

The brush fire is one of the first this season for Palm Beach County, which has seen unseasonably dry weather for this time of year. An article in the Palm Beach Post in February predicted the drought conditions to worsen over the next several months.

Here at PBA, students can reduce their water usage by running only full loads of dishes and clothing, monitoring usage of water when brushing teeth and showering and encouraging other students to do the same. The purchase of bottled water instead of using water from the tap can also reduce daily water usage.

UPDATE: According to WPTV News Chanel 5, all lanes are reopened and the fire is contained.
