The smoke was hanging in the air and we visited Belfast yesterday and it was so smoky! We wondered what it was.

That stock pile is going to take some time to put out , if its in the middle.
Last time I was in there it was a good 20 plus meters high.

A real glow in the sky tonight from the fire, will take a while to burn out I reckon.

It smells like this every cold night in Chch because of dam logburners.

Smells like that due to toxic chemicals in the wood that's burning . much of it will be treated , counter to what was in the media yesterday
