Clouds of smoke over Columbia today are coming from a controlled burn at Fort Jackson, interim Fire Chief Aubrey Jenkins said.
The burning is occurring on about 48 acres of undeveloped land at the fort near Percival Road.
?It is drifting into the city,? Jenkins said of the smoke. ?We?ve gotten several calls on it.?
But Jenkins said the fire is being managed and ?is not out of control.??
The burning has been going on all week, said Karen Soule, a spokeswoman for the fort.
