A fast-moving wildfire near Bryceville, a rural community located northwest of Jacksonville in Nassau County, Fla., has destroyed 10-15 homes and displaced more than 150 families, including their horses and livestock. According to local law enforcement officials, the fire was caused by an illegal burn of a homeowner burning paperback books on their property. There have been no reported injuries and everyone in the area has been safely evacuated to local shelters. As of 9 a.m EDT today, the 400-acre wildfire is 65% contained. Special thanks to all of our Northeast Florida first responders, some who came from as far as St. Johns County Sheriff's Office, to assist Nassau County Sheriff's Office and Florida Forest Service officials. Here are some impactful images from the scene, courtesy of WJXT4 The Local Station / News4JAX and Action News Jacksonville.
