Smoke signals

Jerry Ito saw the Slice column reference to backyard cookouts that create so much smoke neighbors wonder if your house is on fire.

“I've got one better,” wrote Ito, a Davis, Calif., resident in Spokane visiting family. “Our charcoal grill put out so much smoke one time that a firefighter from the nearby fire station came by to check on us.”

I assume they offered him or her something to eat.
