THICK, BLACK SMOKE BILLOWED INTO THE SKY ALONG ALLIGATOR ALLEY - AND COULD BE SPOTTED MILES AWAY.

IT HAPPENED AROUND 10:00 NEAR MILE MARKER 77 - TROOPERS SAY THE REAR TIRE ON A CAR CARRIER BLEW - RUPTURING ITS HYDRAULIC LINE.

Sean Whelen/10:10:24 "Tons of black smoke, maybe 50, 80 feet in the air."

THE DRIVER OF THE CARRIER PULLED OVER AND TRIED TO EXTINGUISH THE FIRE HIMSELF BUT COULDN'T HANDLE THE FLAMES.

Martin Wolt/Fort Myers/10:13:18 "The smoke was jet black and way high, it looked like a bomb went off and every now and then you heard a "boom" and that was the tire blowing up."

8 CARS AND THE CARRIER ITSELF - ALL DESTROYED BEFORE FIREFIGHTERS COULD EVEN RESPOND.

District Chief Caleb Morris/Ochopee Fire Dist./10:23:31 'It was all fully involved, all vehicles, tractor, all of it."

EASTBOUND TRAFFIC WAS AT A STANDSTILL FOR NEARLY TWO HOURS - LEAVING DRIVERS LIKE MARTIN WOLT WITH NOTHING TO DO BUT SIT BACK AND WATCH.

LUCKILY, NO ONE WAS INJURED.

BUT FIREFIGHITERS SAY A QUICKER RESPONSE TIME -

COULD HAVE SPARKED A DIFFERENT OUTCOME.

FIRST ALERT FORECAST-WXWALL


THIS WEATHERCAST HAS BEEN PREPARED BY THE NBC2 WEATHER STAFF.

IT IS NOT A VERBATIM OF WHAT IS BEING SAID, BUT IS THE FORECAST FOR OUR AREA.

SHOWERS BY THURSDAY

The forecast tonight still calls for quiet weather. Skies will be mostly clear this evening with temperatures dropping down to the lower 60's along the coast and mid 50's inland. There will likely be more fog developing overnight and lasting for a few hours again tomorrow morning.

After the fog burns off, skies will be partly cloudy during the day with an increase in clouds by evening. On Thursday we will track a cold front moving in from the Gulf of Mexico. Skies will be mostly cloudy on Thursday and showers/thunderstorms will be developing during the day. A few of the storms could be accompanied with heavy rain, lightning and gusty winds.

The weather on Thursday should be followed by clearing skies on Friday and a very nice weekend. It looks like our temperatures will dip, briefly, into the 70's on Friday but rebound to the 80's by Saturday and Sunday. Mostly sunny skies are expected through the weekend.

TRUST OFFICIALS SAY THEY USUALLY REQUIRE AN INVESTMENT BEFORE GETTING INVOLVED.

"Should it and will it stay on the table? Yeah, but in the long run it's probably really not the option that works best for the city as a whole.

Nick: Who's the better golfer?

Muggs: He is.

Nick: That didn't seem too convincing!

Muggs: Ok.I let him think he is! 19:58

THEY MAY BE ADVERSARIES ON THE GOLF COURSE --

BUT IN REAL LIFE --THEY'VE BEEN PARTNERS IN CRIME FOR MORE THAN 50 YEARS.

THAT RELATIONSHIP WAS PUT TO THE TEST FOUR YEARS AGO WHEN PETER GOT NEWS FROM HIS DOCTOR HE THOUGHT HE'D NEVER HEAR

6:01 - 6:12

I felt this little thing like a BB right on the lower part of the aerola and I thought, this is strange

TURNS OUT -- PETER HAD REASON TO BE ALARMED.

A BIOPSY WOULD REVEAL PETER HAD BREAST CANCER.

It scared the "degeebers" out of me 5:21

ACCORDING TO SUSAN G. KOMEN.

MORE THAN 22-HUNDRED MEN WILL RECEIVE THAT NEWS IN 2013.

AND MORE THAN 400 OTHERS DIED.

DR. LEA BLACKWELL WAS PETER'S SURGEON.

SHE SAYS MANY GUYS SADLY AREN'T AS PRO-ACTIVE AS HE WAS.

If you have a mass in your breast or if you notice you have nipple discharge or nipple inversion or there's something unusual going on with your breast, men have a little bit of a lower threshold to go in and get it checked out

PETER'S ADVICE TO ALL MEN IS TO KEEP THEIR EYES OPEN FOR ANYTHING THAT SEEMS OUT OF THE ORDINARY.

EVEN IF IT'S SOMETHING THAT SEEMS SMALL.TELLING YOUR DOCTOR COULD END UP SAVING YOUR LIFE.

PETER STILL REMEMBERS WHAT HIS ONCOLOGIST TOLD HIM SHORTLY AFTER HE WAS DIAGNOSED.

He called me on the phone and said if you wouldn't have had come to me and had that checked, you'd be dead by now 4:01
