Third incident of dark smoke at Lake Worth crematorium prompts more complaints

The Palm Beach County Public Health Department confirmed another incident today of dark smoke at All County Funeral Home & Crematory on Lake Avenue.

That makes at least three days this month when heavy smoke emissions from human cremations prompted complaints  from the public. The other two incidents occured July 1 and July 16.

Health officials are investigating the cause of all three incidents.

The latest one occured this morning, prompting more concern from residents on social media and calls to the health department.

“I think residents are growing more and more concerned about this, just from the number of contacts I’ve had,” said Michael Chase Fox .

“We don’t need our image in Lake Worth to be hurt more. But this is something that exceeds that concern.”
