Yeah, well, these 7 were oceanside of Lazy Lakes back in ‘10 or ‘11

I saw one trying to form on the gulf... never touched down.. called it in to dispatch just in case.

How is a water spout different from a tornado, other than being over water?

Big Pine Key Wildfire Update - 7 PM: the fire remains 50% contained with around 100 acres burned.Big Pine Key Brush Fire Update 7 p.m.

MAP: The affected area of the brush fire is inside the red box.

UPDATE: About 46 firefighters from seven agencies (Monroe County Fire Rescue, Key Largo Fire Department, U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service, U.S. Forest Service, National Park Service, Florida Forest Service and the Georgia Forestry Commission) worked all day on the Big Pine Key brush fire.

The fire remains at 50 percent containment, with about 100 acres burned. Fire fighters spent Tuesday putting out hot spots and conducting protective measures around 30 homes that were identified as being in the affected area that is a combination of rural, wooded areas and residences.

Crews also created more fire break barriers with specialized vehicles called bombardiers. Other crews did some mop-up duty. This involves making a fire safe and reducing residual smoke by raking burning embers and/or spraying water on them.

A helicopter crew contracted by the federal government also made air drops with about 800 gallons of water per drop.
Crews will work Tuesday night and monitor a weather front that is expected to pass through around 3 a.m.

There are still prime conditions for fire in the area due to excessive debris – and dead and dry vegetation – from Hurricane Irma, as well as hot temperatures, shifting winds and a lack of rain.

A weak cool front is evident northwest of the Florida Keys on GOES-16 satellite imagery. This boundary will push through tonight, and may be a source of scattered showers across our area after dark. Expect slightly cooler temperatures and humidities for the rest of the week. #flwx #keyswx ...

Latest update: the wildfire remained about 40% contained, with around 100 acres burned.

Some good news: Monroe County Fire Rescue firefighter, Jen Shockley, saved a Key Deer fawn overnight!Monroe County Fire Rescue firefighter Jen Shockley from the Big Coppitt Key station responded to the Big Pine Key brush fire shortly after it started Sunday afternoon. While protecting a home and with the fire moving rapidly at that point, Shockley rescued an endangered Key deer fawn.

“I jumped into the flames and saved the little guy,” Shockley said. “He was all by himself and running for his life into the fire.”

The rescue of the spotted fawn occurred at the corner of Raccoon Run and Wilder Boulevard.

The Key deer was given oxygen and water, and wrapped in a sheet. The deer was uninjured but kept in Monroe County Fire Rescue’s tanker until the fire was under control in that area. At about 3 a.m. the deer was taken to Incident Command and released unharmed into a nearby unburned area.

This was a unique situation with a fawn and no mother in sight. Key deer usually do not need to be rescued because they have evolved over the years and know how to adapt to fires. No Key deer have been found harmed and the ones observed appear healthy and not stressed, according to Dan Clark, Refuge Manager of the National Key Deer Refuge.

It is not uncommon to see Key deer near fires. The interagency response on Big Pine Key is cognizant of wildlife during the suppression. Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission and the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service are active participants in the fire respond and prepared for wildlife emergencies as needed. The Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and FWC also assisted with traffic control to keep speeds down in the affected areas.

Clark pointed out that Key deer habitat need fires. The new growth that will follow provides nourishment for the herd.
