From the text ... 'Ten years ago there was no known smoke problem in the south from prescribed burning except isolated pockets, or at least we were not aware of them. Today, the smoke problem from prescribed burning varies from being a major problem in some states to no problem in other states. Regulations have helped in some areas while in others the problem remains due to increasing population in rural areas and increasing awareness of air pollution and its effect.'
