Lincoln smells!

Posted by: Newsroom

Did you wake up this morning and smell a very distinct odor?  The entire city smells like smoke and fire, or maybe like there's something burning.

Channel 8 Eyewitness News did some digging Wednesday morning and can confirm there have been no fires around the area.

Lincoln's Fire Department says it can't be sure, but suspects the strong smell is possibly being blown in from Kansas. For the last week or so, the fire department says farmers have been burning their fields in Kansas and with the stronger winds Wednesday, it's possible the smell may have traveled all the way to Lincoln.
