The Florida Highway Patrol said Tuesday morning it was monitoring the areas of U.S. Highway 90 and Interstate 10 at the Baker-Columbia county line for possible smoke issues due to a brush fire.

Motorists were urged to use caution when traveling in the area.

Visibility may deteriorate quickly due to smoke/fog-type conditions, especially during the nighttime hours, state troopers said.

Motorists are reminded to reduce their speed and use low-beam headlights to adapt to changing weather conditions.
