The extremely dry weather has caused brush fires to pop up across Connecticut.
Firefighters in Shelton sent News 12 this video.
It happened on Route 8 between exits 11 and 12.
Officials say the fires were big enough that plumes of smoke could be seen from a half-mile away.
They say there were actually three fires in the same area, and that no one was hurt.
