A prescribed burn is underway in Central Florida. 

The 134-acre prescribed burn is in Little Big Econ State Forest. This one is complete, but smoke from the burn is reported in the area near Snow Hill Road. 

Officials said there's also a prescribed burn in Volusia County, and winds are bringing smoke to the areas of Chuluota, Winter Springs, and Altamonte Springs. 

The 3,000-acre prescribed burn is in the area of SR-46 and Hatbill. 

Fire officials said not to call 911 if you see smoke or haze in the area. You should only contact 911 to report "thick chimneys of smoke or flames."

The fire was so large that it was detectable on the FOX 35 Storm Tracker Radar as seen in these images below:
