HEBER — A dark plume of smoke that could be seen for miles Monday afternoon is being attributed to a river-bottom fire in the vicinity of Clark and Kubler roads, west of here.

A spokesman for the Imperial County Fire Department could not be reached for comment Monday, but the department did confirm on its Facebook page the location of the fire and that it had activated a second alarm.
