People arriving downtown this morning have been greeted by smoke in the air but Columbus Fire Marshal Thomas Streeter says no fire has been reported in Muscogee County.

Streeter said he had not been informed of any planned burn at Fort Benning. "They let us know," said Streeter.

A check with the Phenix City Fire Department, Russell County Sheriff's Office, Lee County Sheriff's Office and Harris County Sheriff's Office brought no reports of a fire.
