CAPE CORAL, Fla. -- Some people in Cape Coral were also seeing flames from a brush fire in their neighborhood, albeit on a much smaller scale than the large fire in Collier County.

The fire flared up Wednesday in the 2000 block of Southwest 3rd Avenue, between Skyline Boulevard and Santa Barbara Boulevard.

It started in a vacant lot. Neighbors called 911, after trying to put it out themselves, but their hose wouldn't reach the flames.
