ORLANDO, Fla (Reuters) - Interstate 95 on Florida's east coast was closed early Tuesday near Cocoa as firefighters battled a new brush fire, according to the Florida Highway Patrol.
A combination of fog and smoke hindered visibility and may be to blame for an accident involving several vehicles before dawn.
The interstate closure includes both directions of a 10-mile section extending from State Road 50 to the Beachline Expressway, the highway patrol said.
A separate brush fire in the vicinity earlier this month initially closed almost 30 miles of I-95 from Mims in Brevard County to New Smyrna Beach in Volusia County, and disrupted traffic for more than a week.
