The heavy smoke seen in north Houston County on Sunday afternoon was caused by a machine fire.
According to Cpl. Chris Stoner with the Houston County Fire Department, a piece of equipment sitting in a cotton field near Dunbar Road and Simmons Road caught fire around 4 p.m.
Stoner said the fire was contained to the machine, but investigators are still trying to determine what exactly caused the machine to catch fire.
