Smoking is nothing to worry about

The sight of smoke behind Vernon's Fitness West on Wednesday was not a cause for concern, according to city officials.

Josh Winquist, spokesman for the city of Vernon, said the smoke was coming from a burning of yard waste.

“The incident you are referring to turned out to be a resident’s trash burning,” Winquist said.

The call about smoke came in around 3 p.m., and the fire was put out shortly after.

It is unclear whether the burn was legal or not.
