A brush fire shut down northbound U.S. 27 from Interstate 75 in Broward early Monday, according to the Florida Highway Patrol. The road is closed to Southern Boulevard in Palm Beach County.
The road opened before 9 a.m.
The haze also is lingering over suburban areas of Miami-Dade and Broward on Monday morning, and people are waking up to the intense smell of smoke outside.
The smoke -- heavy in Miami Beach, downtown Miami, West Miami-Dade and along the I-95 and 826 corridors -- also is cutting visibility on the roads.
Visibility is down to one or two miles in some areas of Hialeah and South Miami-Dade.
