Smoke wafting over Tampa

- A controlled burn north of Tampa is sending smoke into parts of the city, some of it noticeably heavy.

A Hillsborough County Fire Rescue spokesman says the state Division of Forestry is conducting a 120-acre controlled burn in the Lettuce Lake Park area north of Fletcher.

Light winds out of the north are carrying the smoke and even some ash south.
