Source of smoke south of the state line

A view of the smoke looking south from Paddock Lake.

If you’re wondering what that smoke is to the south, I can’t tell you. However, according to scanner transmissions, whatever is causing the smoke is in Illinois.

If I find out more I’ll pass it on.

UPDATE 2:30 p.m. — Reader Andy Dietz reports WBBM radio is reporting the smoke was caused by a prescribed or controlled burn at Chain o’ Lakes State Park, located just south of Highway 173 west of Antioch.

Paul Brown shared this photo of the burn:

This prescribed burn at Chain o' Lake State Park threw up a large amount of smoke this morning that was easy to spot throughout Western Kenosha County. The park is in Illinois south of Highway 173 and west of Antioch. /Photo by Paul Brown Jr.
