Three wildfires, named the Chipola Complex, have burned over 34,000 acres in Florida’s panhandle
. The fires are impacting communities that still have not fully recovered from Hurricane Michael in 2018. The fire is following the path of debris left by the category 5 hurricane, that claimed the lives of 36 people.
The largest of the three fires is only 10 percent contained as of Wednesday, March 8. So far over 1000 homes have been evacuated.
