Duration: 15 minutes
Huge cloud of smoke but with a bright flashing light changing from pink to purple at each flash. Appeared to be from a very large fire.

I was driving down 7th street toward ward road to locate the source of such large flashing cloud, but as I drove it moved away from me until finally disappearing, totally out of sight by the store on Beaumont street bit leaving behind a smoke trail in the sky. I told my husband to check to see if there was any fires in the area and there were none.
