MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — The haze that you can see in parts of the Twin Cities metro area Friday afternoon is coming from up north, according to a meteorologist.

The National Weather Service meteorologist said the haze is likely due to controlled burns that are being carried out in the Arrowhead region north of Duluth.

The haze has led to a few calls being placed to Minneapolis and Ramsey County dispatches.

    Seriously, what WAS burning? I live in NE Mpls, went into 1 store, left, no prob, went into store 2, smelled like a chemical fire. Went home 1/2 mile away, same nonsense, smelled like a burning chemical with a HUGE haze!
