EL PASO, Texas -- A thick, heavy black smoke plume was visible to residents of west El Paso and Sunland Park on Tuesday evening, prompting calls of concern to local authorities and ABC-7.

But El Paso and Sunland Park firefighters said they weren't working any active fires and said the blaze was burning on the Mexico side of the border.

ABC-7's news partners at Canal 44 in Juarez reported that it was a pile of tires and trash that burned. The fire was eventually extinguished.
