• Effective immediately we will be deleting, without notice, any negative threads or posts that deal with the use of encryption and streaming of scanner audio.

    We've noticed a huge increase in rants and negative posts that revolve around agencies going to encryption due to the broadcasting of scanner audio on the internet. It's now worn out and continues to be the same recycled rants. These rants hijack the threads and derail the conversation. They no longer have a place anywhere on this forum other than in the designated threads in the Rants forum in the Tavern.

    If you violate these guidelines your post will be deleted without notice and an infraction will be issued. We are not against discussion of this issue. You just need to do it in the right place. For example:

First fire N of I-4 and I-95 is in a different thread.

The next one looks like it started about 4 miles west of Cocoa, north of 520 and it too has jumped I-95.

The next one looks about 12 miles south of Melbourne and it to has burned on both sides of I-95. It looks like it has reached the water around Grant and probably can't do much more unless there is a wind shift.

2107. Next one is WNW of Clewiston. It look like it has burned to Lake O and has slowed down although it looks like one head could be moving SE, west of the lake. I don't know what the water level is I'm guessing it is on the low side. I've got to go do some other work for about a half hour. I'll look at the other one up north when I get back.

The last one and smallest of the five looks like it was WNW of St. Augustine on the east side of I-95.

It looks like the Brevard county one is getting real bad, real fast. There are home owners live on the news that are taking water out of their pool and trying to put out their houses that caught fire. There are not even any fire units in the area, seems like they need some mutual aid down there bad.

For anyone interested, the one in Volusia County on LPGA is on talkgroup 15-157 (2047) on the Volusia County system. That is also patched with VTAC3 on 158.7375. I think there is also law enforcement for that area on talkgroup 15-154 (2044).
