Column of smoke visible from News10's Stockton tower camera
SACRAMENTO COUNTY - A large plume of smoke towered over the Sacramento region Sunday afternoon.
The fire department says the smoke stemmed from a controlled burn that got out of control on Lower Sherman Island, near Antioch, around 2 p.m.
The island, that is not inhabited and has no structures, was allowed to continue to burn.
As of 5 p.m. the dark smoke could be seen around the Bay Area as well as around San Joaquin County.
