Florida faced 32 active wildfires Monday, as dry conditions in parts of the state continued to pose a threat for blazes. 

Agriculture Commissioner Adam Putnam, whose agency includes the Florida Forest Service, announced the updated number of fires, which included a 450-acre fire in Polk County that was 75 percent contained.

Firefighters in recent weeks also have dealt with large fires in areas such as Collier County.
