Good evening. A lot of folks are reporting smoke from the North Hills Fire area. Some of these are "dust devils" and some of the smoke is coming from well interior of the fire area due to a change in wind direction. These interior smokes are posing no threat at this time. Fire crews continue to patrol the fire perimeter. There is no need to call 911 unless there is fire activity near the existing fire edge or a structure is threatened. You will continue to see smoke from the interior for an extended period of time. Thank you for your cooperation!
