    How horrible:( I don't understand why 1-75 wasn't closed because of the smoke and fog?

    Prayers to all the victims and to the first responders.

    If it is proven that the fire was intentionally set, can the arson be charged with murder?

    I-75 had been closed, but was reopened when conditions improved. After a change in the weather, the fog and smoke settled back on the highway.

    It doesn't matter if it's fog, smoke, blowing sand or blowing snow. Drivers tend to overestimate how far they can see and how fast they can stop. Slow down, back off from the vehicle in front of you and pray that the person behind you does the same.
