WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- A dense smoke advisory is in effect for our area until 11 a.m. The smoke from the Juniper Road Fire burning in the Holly Shelter Game Land has combined with fog to reduce visibility significantly.

Downtown Wilmington was not visible from the Holmes Bridge (photo right) around 9 a.m.

Visibility is starting to improve, but the fog and smoke may stay around until the afternoon.
