Suncoast Parkway reopens, but fire concerns continue

A fast-growing fire in Pasco County closed the Suncoast Parkway between State Roads 52 and 54 for several hours Saturday.

The road was closed between 3:43 p.m. and 6:13 p.m.

The fire is about 10 acres. Officials say it is 30 percent contained.

The same roadway was closed last week as crews battled a 2,270-acre fire in the Starkey Wilderness Preserve.

Though the road has reopened, the Florida Highway Patrol said troopers are continuing to monitor the area for visibility.
