Fire crews in Jupiter Farms are dealing with a brush fire. 

Palm Beach County Fire Rescue responded to the scene off of Rocky Pines road Saturday afternoon. 

PBSO blocked off the area to traffic. 

Residents tell us they saw more than a dozen fire trucks and smelled smoke, but didn’t see much in the way of flames. 

They also tell us they lost power for about an hour after the flames got to one of the power poles.  

Denise Robinette lives down Rocky Pines road, and described the scene.  

“I was in my house and I saw a bunch of smoke and ashes falling down and I went outside and saw firetrucks about three or four blocks down,” Robinette says. “I couldn't see any flames, but I can see lots of smoke.” 

Robinette says she isn't sure when she will be able to get back to her house tonight.
