What was in the air early Wednesday evening over Brownsville?

Thick and very smelly cloud of smoke looked ominous over the skies of Brownsville, but the fire department reported that the smoke was from a controlled burn at the Laguna Atascosa Wildlife Refuge 30 miles northeast of the city. The refuge did have permission and a permit to the controlled burn and so the fire was a legal one.
