The Mud Lake Wildfire Complex, thirty miles east of Naples, Florida in Big Cypress National Preserve is approximately 2,077 acres and remains 15% contained at this time.The Mud Lake wildfires started naturally by lightning as storms passed through the local area this weekend.

Fire personnel are actively suppressing the six wildfires (Ellison, Ellipse, Mist, Circle, Square, and Triangle wildfires) in order to provide for firefighter and public safety and limit smoke impacts to Interstate 75.Air and ground personnel continue to work together on suppression efforts where accessibility allows for safe access for firefighters to work on the fires.
