Large plume of smoke seen around metro Detroit

Posted: Updated:
(WJBK) -  Many contacted Fox 2 about the sighting of a huge plume of smoke on the east side.

The smoke is coming from a controlled burn on Dickinson Island in lake St. Clair.

The Michigan Department of Natural Resources uses the burn to get rid of dead vegetation and promote the growth of new plants.

A warehouse also burned Friday night in the area of I-96 and Greenfield Road, forcing some major road closures.
