HECTOR LORA: And as I was mentioning before, this fire is impacting a greater part of the area. It's almost a city block here at Atlantic Coast Recycling.

Th other concern are pocket, fires because of embers and the fire that's actually traveling around the area. So we remind you to please keep your windows closed. But if you see instances of fire in the area, call immediately 911 and let us know.
