Officials are keeping a close eye on a large brush fire burning in West Broward.

The Florida Forest Service said they are monitoring an 800-acre forest fire about a mile north of Alligator Alley, near Mile Marker 44 of Interstate 75.

Firefighters will not be trying to put out the blaze, officials said. The primary concern earlier was the wind direction, but that has since subsided.

According to FFS officials, there are currently no structures being threatened, and roadways remain open.
Motorists are advised to be on alert for smoke in the area.
