CONCORD -- A report of a plane down at Buchanan Field Wednesday afternoon turned out to be false, according to a dispatcher with the Contra Costa County Fire Department.

People called the department about 3:30 p.m. with reports of smoke in the area and others said they thought they saw a plane in trouble.

The tower at the small airport said there are no missing planes.

Authorities said the smoke at least one person reported seeing was coming from an asphalt plant near the airport, according to Claycord.com.
