What is with the smoke smell outside in Richmond?

RICHMOND, VA (WWBT) - You may have awakened this morning and smelled a little smoke outside. What you are likely smelling is the smoke from the Stumpy Point fire in eastern North Carolina.

We noticed it this morning because of the southeasterly winds from the area near the fire, which has been burning for more than a month.
