Massive 'ash devil' mistaken for fire in Kennewick

KENNEWICK, Wash. - Officials received multiple reports of "black smoke" in the air in Kennewick near I-82 and Highway 395 on Monday.

A number of citizens were concerned that it may have been smoke from a fire burning in the area. However, fire officials say it was actually a massive dust devil blowing up ash. 

On Saturday, crews responded to a fire that burned at least 500 acres a few miles south of Kennewick near I-82 and Highway 397.
