By Staff | Mar 23, 2009

The grass fire in Sanibel Gardens remains active but contained, officials reported at 6 p.m. today.

No further updates will be posted unless a change in the situation warrants it, a prepared statement from the city said.

The City of Sanibel Police and Natural Resource Departments assisted the Sanibel Fire District in working the active but contained fire earlier today.

No evacuations were ordered and no roads were closed, according to an early release issued at 5:38 p.m. Motorists, though, were asked to avoid the general area.
