Florida wildfires have destroyed more than 100 homes and left dozens of people dead, including three in two days, as the country struggles with another pandemic.
The first death in a countywide outbreak on Thursday was in Fort Myers, a small town about 60 miles east of Miami.
A second death was in Orange, a suburb of Tampa, where an air-conditioning unit exploded in a residential neighborhood and killed one person.
Two more people were reported to have died in Florida on Friday, the state health department said.
The state Department of Health said it was working with the Florida Fish and Wildlife Conservation Commission to monitor conditions and to find a way to contain the spread of the coronavirus.
The Broward County Health Department reported three new confirmed cases Friday, bringing the total to 15.
It said five additional cases had been confirmed.
A fire at the end of last week in Lake Worth destroyed two homes and killed two people, according to officials.
Authorities say a woman who died Friday in Lake County was not infected with the virus, although she had respiratory symptoms.
