BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA (WFTV) – Parts of a horse stable fire continued to smoke and burn Thursday after a massive brush fire scorched more than 300 acres near Port St. John, according to Brevard County Fire Rescue.

“It was burning quick and fast,” said Suzanna Norris, who runs Hidden Acres Rescue for Thoroughbreds. “The helicopter was dumping water. They were here quickly and managed to keep it at bay.”

The brush fire that started Wednesday has been 90 percent contained, the Brevard County Emergency Management Office said.

The fire shut down State Road 407 until 8:30 a.m. Thursday when troopers reopened the road. However, firefighters warn that smoke remains in the area.
