A hay fire that has been burning in the East Valley since Monday is inundating the area with a brown hazy cloud and odor, according to Mesa police.
The fire started in a haystack just north of Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport near Warner Road.
CBS 5 viewers and cbs5az.com users complained about the haze and odor Wednesday morning.
A Rural-Metro Fire Department spokesman said the fire was expected to burn for several days.
