CASPER, Wyo. — Casper Fire-EMS said Friday afternoon that smoke visible over the south side of Casper is being caused by the routine operations of a pottery kiln at Casper College.

Public information officer and engineer Dane Andersen said the kiln is operating normally, and smoke “should dissipate when the kiln gets up to temperature — but it is a long process.”

Casper Fire-EMS crews investigated the report of smoke around 11:47 a.m. Friday, Andersen said.
