Smoke from a fire that was next to a home on the Manchester Highway had residents concerned as the billowing black clouds could be seen from miles away. However, once on the scene the fire that was near Joe B. Jackson Parkway proved to be much smaller than initially expected.
Rutherford County authorities told WGNS that the fire was a controlled burn. The problem however, the fire contained items in the burn pile that are not permissible to burn.
Rutherford County Fire department officials extinguished the blaze and advised the homeowner of outdoor burning regulations.
No one was injured.
