Large Smoky Plume Prompts Calls To TV5, 911 12-08-2010

All that smoke you're seeing in the area of I-75 and M-13 is a controlled burn by the Department of Natural Resources.
It's a planned event that will reduce unwanted and excess vegetation in a marsh area on the Crow Island game area.
People have been calling TV5 to report black smoke that's visible from miles away.
DNR officials said controlled burns can occur anytime between now and spring break.
Authorities said Wednesday's burn can occur closer to the ground and due to a lack of snow, hopefully burning into the roots.
