Crews tackle 50-acre Brevard County wildfire, officials say

BREVARD COUNTY, Fla. – Fire crews responded to a Brevard County wildfire Wednesday afternoon that is endangering several structures near Sebastian, according to the Florida Forest Service.

Officials said that the wildfire — dubbed “Iris Fire” — spread approximately 50 acres near 9335 Honeysuckle Drive.

FFS said this wildfire comes after another wildfire — dubbed “Moss Rose” — sprang up in Malabar. Fire officials said containment of the Moss Rose fire dropped due to the fire jumping containment lines, though crews were ultimately able to put it out by Wednesday evening.
