The Mount Airy fire company investigated a large plume of smoke Tuesday evening, but it was ultimately traced to a trash fire in Howard County.

At about 5:21 p.m., the fire company received reports of a large plume of black smoke visible from the International House of Pancakes on Twin Arch Road and went to investigate, according to Public Information Officer Doug Alexander.

"It was actually a fire that was going on in Howard County, on the 700 block of W. Watersville Road," he said. "It was a trash fire. Lisbon Volunteer Fire Department was on the scene and they told us they didn't need any help, so we came on home."
