Fire crews in Polk County are trying to contain a wildfire near Lake Mattie, but officials tell us it's causing some visibility problems on I-4.
The 550-acre fire is burned near the Lake Mattie marsh and firefighters believe it will be burning for quite some time because of muck in the area.
Smoke can be seen on I-4 at County Road 557A, officials said Thursday.
The fire started burning Wednesday evening.
Officials are warning drivers to be careful if they're in the Auburndale area.
