FFS: 20-acre Cocoa brushfire is out


COCOA, Fla. - Florida Forest Service said a brushfire burning in Cocoa has been 100 percent contained Monday night.

Grissom Parkway is closed due to smoke.

Florida Highway Patrol said it will be monitoring S.R. 528 throughout the night for possible road closure if smoke impacts the highway.

The 20-acre brush fire, nicknamed "Sand Trap," had been burning in the woods near Grissom Parkway in Cocoa.

The fire had jumped the S.R. 528 Beachline and was in a neighborhood, Florida Forest Service said Monday night.

Brevard County Fire Rescue said workers contained the jump, which was in a small spot and no homes are threatened at this time.
