In last week's Fire Department log, a reader asked for further information on an investigation at the East Boston Camps. Westford Patch has learned that the call was in reference to smoke rising from Burbeck Way, just a few dozen feet away from the entrance to the camps.
Upon further investigation, the smoke came from a legal, outdoor cooking fire.
