Prescribed burns in the area are now complete
The smoke that was seen for miles around the Shenandoah Valley were from prescribed burns in the Shenandoah National Park as well as the George Washington and Jefferson National forests areas.
Just over 35 hundred acres have been burned to promote wildlife habitats and reduce leaf litter.
The fallen leaves could cause even larger fires if left to build on the forest floor.
The burns in the Shenandoah National Park are now complete.
