TAMPA - The Tampa Police Department, Tampa Fire Department and Arson Investigators are looking in to three fires in the area southwest of MLK Jr. Blvd and Florida Ave. in Tampa. Traffic should avoid MLK for the morning commute. Hillsborough Ave. or Columbus Dr. are options. Also, avoid Florida (NB only) and Tampa (SB only) using North Blvd. or another alternate. I-275 exit ramps at MLK are jammed.
