BALDWIN, Fla. -- The Baldwin Bay Fire has burned more than 500 acres as of Sunday afternoon, sending smoke across downtown Jacksonville.

Gusting winds are causing intense burning, wind switches and spot fires ahead of the main fire.

According to Florida Forest Service spokeswoman Annaleasa Winter, there are eight tractors and two engines on scene.

Earlier, firefighters were having to pull out from the fire line due to the weather and fire behavior.

No structures are threatened and no injuries have been reported because the fire is primarily burning on land owned by Gate.

The smoke is causing hazardous driving conditions on roadways, including Highway 301 and Interstate 10.
