This week a military training exercise sparked an 8,000-acre wildfire at Avon Park Air Force Bombing Range near the Highlands-Polk County line.
The fire started Wednesday afternoon, and according to Fox 13
, was 50 percent contained by Thursday.
USAF Director of Operations Buck MacLaughlin told the station that they couldn't quite pinpoint the culprit, but the fire could've been started by rockets, a missile or possibly a bomb.
The fire is expected to burn through the weekend.
