That was literally the case recently when a garage full of smoke helped signal the location of a 31-year-old Kalkaska man who had been trying to elude police but now faces multiple charges after a joint investigation by the Kalkaska County Sheriff Department and Michigan State Police in eastern Kalkaska Township in the area of Kettle Lake and Hartzell roads.

The chase started around 4 a.m. on Tuesday, Jan. 26, when Kalkaska Central Dispatch received a call from a woman stating her son was allegedly threatening her, her husband and another family member.
