JACKSONVILLE Fla. -- If you've noticed smoke near UNF today, it's not for a bad reason.

The Florida Forest Service says this is because of a prescribed burn in the area.

The burn is taking place just off I-295 near the University of North Florida, and north of JTB.

Crews will be burning 24 acres in that area.  The fire picked up because of the wind, according to Florida Forest Service spokeswoman Annaleasa Winter.

Winter says people should be careful when driving by the area.
