ORLANDO, FLA. (AP) - A wildfire that is burning in Orlando blew heavy smoke near the busy hotel and attractions district of Walt Disney World at the start of the busy Memorial Day weekend.

The smoke also closed a section of Orlando’s main highway in the city’s tourist district for a couple hours Friday.

A section of Interstate 4 was closed in both directions because the billowing smoke cut down visibility.

No injuries or damage to buildings were reported. By nightfall, the smoke had died down but the fire is still burning.
