Gov. Rick Scott declared a state of emergency for Florida on April 11 due to the multitude of wildfires burning in the parched state. Flames have already scorched 250 percent more land in the first three months of 2017 than during the same time frame in 2016. More than 100 active wildfires have consumed more than 20,000 acres across Florida, according to Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam.
