If you thought you smelled smoke in the air on Saturday, you were not imagining things, nor were you alone.Palm Beach County Fire Rescue’s Captain Albert Borroto issued a statement Saturday morning that it all originated in the Everglades.“There are no active brush fires currently in the county. This smell of smoke is coming from fires outside the county and it is being pushed in by the weather front that was predicted to move in this weekend,” Borroto said.Improvement is expected through mid-morning as daytime heating will increase the wind which will help the atmosphere mix and disperse the smoke more easily. pic.twitter.com/tcVq4TmxKj— NWS Miami (@NWSMiami) May 9, 2020 However, officials added that the weekend smoke was unrelated to several wildfires that have been burning in Florida’s Panhandle since last Monday.The Five Mile Swamp fire in Santa Rosa County burned through more than 2,000 acres and destroyed at least 17 homes, according to the Florida Forest Service.Rather, the reason for Saturday’s smoky air was due to the Moon Fish Wildfire that was discovered on Thursday at the southeast corner of Big Cypress National Preserve and close to the Everglades National Park boundary.According to a news release from Laurie Humphrey, Big Cypress’ lead park ranger, the fire was “human caused,” a truck fire. The person was cited, she said.By Friday evening, the Moon Fish Wildfire was covering about 12,181 acres, and was burning through sawgrass and cypress as aerial and ground crews tried to contain it.The National Weather Service also said smoke from fires in the Everglades could impact visibility over portions of South Florida during the early part of the weekend.

31 Mar 2014 Chesters and birthday boy Evans help Europe lift Bonallack Trophy Europe’s top amateurs completed their fourth successive victory in the event and their sixth in eight meetings when they beat Asia/Pacific 17½ – 14½ on the final day of the Sir Michael Bonallack Trophy in India. In a tough encounter over the KGA Course in Bangalore, Europe went into the third and final day’s 12 singles with a five point lead and despite losing the session 5-7, held on for a comfortable victory. The two England team members, Ashley Chesters (Hawkstone Park, Shropshire & Herefordshire) and Ryan Evans (Wellingborough, Northamptonshire) played their part. Paired together in the fourballs and foursomes, they suffered just one defeat, while Evans, who celebrated his 27th birthday on the second day, cruised to a 6&4 success in his singles. On the final day, Europe, with players from nine different nations, required just four wins from the 12 singles but Asia/Pacific sparked a comeback by winning four of the first six encounters. However, Europe was not to be denied and it was Ireland’s Gavin Moynihan who saw them over the line when he beat Karan Taunk of India 2&1. Chesters was first out in the singles against the powerful Geoff Drakeford of Australia. The Shropshire man led early on but Drakeford hit back with five birdies to take the point with a 1-hole victory. But that point was soon countered when Evans turned in a powerful performance to beat another Australian, Taylor MacDonald 6 & 4. The match was decided around the turn when Evans birdied three successive holes from the eighth, ran in an eagle at the 11th and then birdied the 12th. “I could have done better,” said MacDonald, “but Ryan was just too good. Once he got into his incredible birdie streak from the eighth, I couldn’t make a comeback.” A delighted Andy Morgan from Wales, Europe’s non-playing captain, said: “It was a tough battle and our players had to fight really hard. Asia/Pacific played really well today and the match looked close a number of times during the day. “The best part about this tournament was that all 13 of us came to Bangalore as individuals and travel back to our respective countries as one team. These boys will never forget this tremendous experience no matter what else they go on to achieve in their careers.” Results Day One: Fourballs: Europe 2 Asia/Pacific 3.
