SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — Acrid, black smoke was seen pouring from a chimney at the Russian consulate in San Francisco Friday, a day after the Trump administration ordered its closure amid escalating tensions between the United States and Russia.

Firefighters who arrived at the scene were turned away by consulate officials who came from inside the building.

An Associated Press reporter heard people who came from inside the building tell firefighters that there was no problem and that consulate staff were burning unidentified items in a fireplace.

Mindy Talmadge, a spokeswoman from the San Francisco Fire Department, said the department received a call about the smoke and sent a crew to investigate but determined the smoke was coming from the chimney.

    Burning documents that prove the Russian connections with Hillary and Obama no doubt.

  • They are no doubt burning sensitive materials. I recall shredding madly in US Embassy Belgrade before the US bombing war against Serbia began. I guess they think burning prevents any chance of reconstruction by our snoopers.

      You are correct.

    Yea, those plastic discs and celluloid tapes do produce a lot of black smoke when burned. Maybe get the EPA to check out what’s in that smoke.

    LOL! I seem to remember a San Francisco & Bay Area television cartoon, either a commercial or TV station promotional bit in, I think, the ’70’s, about the Russian Embassy. Something about spies and missiles, etc.
