Concern over black smoke from All County Funeral Home and Crematory

LAKE WORTH, Fla. - Back to back incidents of thick black smoke coming from a Lake Worth crematory is not sitting well with neighbors.

Some living near the All County Funeral Home and Crematory  are concerned that dark smoke coming from the funeral home is possibly ashes of deceased people.

The Palm Beach County  Health Department said that what people are actually seeing is soot, which it said is similar to what is seen when diesel is burning.

 The Health Department, which oversees crematories, showed up after it received several complaints along with pictures showing the thick, black smoke coming out of the building.

Burners within the incinerators are reportedly not working correctly and the Health Department is trying to figure out why.
