Officials with the Florida Forest Service’s Blackwater Forestry Center are limiting authorized burns in Escambia, Santa Rosa and Okaloosa counties because of high winds and low humidity. Potential burns will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis Monday and Tuesday and only those who are certified burn practitioners may be authorized if approved.
