MORE: First Coast fires
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. -- In Jacksonville today, the Sunshine State seemed more like the Smoky State.
Smoke from wildfires in Georgia and north Florida blanketed skies across Duval County and even along the beach.
Tourism officials said the smoke from wildfires this season has impacted tourism.
Staff asked hoteliers in northeast Florida about the smoke, said Visit Jacksonville spokesperson Lyndsay Rossman.
Some have reported cancellations due to the smoke, and she said more of the cancellations were in leisure hotels along the beach, instead of hotels which cater to business men and women.
