MADISON COUNTY, IL (KTVI)- A brush fire in Madison County, IL, created smoke that could be seen for miles Friday. The fire was along Horseshoe Lake.

Friday’s low humidity and windy conditions mean that conditions are favorable for the spread of fires. Grass and fallen tree limbs are very dry and will fuel a growing fire.
