The fire began yesterday on the western side of the Everglades, and spread rapidly with the wind.
The fire came close to Interstate 75, forcing police to close the main coast to coast highway known as "alligator alley".
It has also threatened power lines that feed most of south Florida.
Firefighters say the fire in the dry grass could have been sparked by the heat from a car's exhaust system.
