WASHINGTON — An area of haze moved over DC skies on Sunday, turning the blue sky to a hazy brown. A controlled burn near Quantico Base in Virginia is the culprit.
Southerly breezes late on Sunday morning pushed a plume of smoke from the burn across northern Virginia, into metro Washington. The smoke from the fire was detected on National Weather Service radar and NOAA satellites.

The smoke is from a controlled burn near Quantico, according to Fairfax, Virginia Fire and Rescue.
The haze could be seen for miles across the DMV, even into the Baltimore area.
The burn is expected to last a total of two days, which means more haze could impact the DMV skies on Monday.
