That Smoke you have been seeing across the Lake area since yesterday is coming from two different fires.
According to numerous area Fire Protection Districts, the main source of the smoke is actually a controlled burn in several locations across the Missouri and Arkansas Border.
Strong winds carried the smoke north, affecting cities all across the Ozarks.
A local brush fire also broke out on the west side, officials with the Gravois Fire Protection District say no one was injured.
