This article is about an older version of DF.

Where there's smoke, there's fire.

When items burn, they release smoke into the surrounding area. The presence of smoke means that it is reasonably close to a source of fire, which can cause fun times. If you see smoke, you have (or very recently had) a fire burning somewhere nearby and should take action. (Since fire is deadly and can easily spread, this is bad enough by itself.)

Dwarves that inhale smoke will get unhappy thoughts. They also may get internal injuries or become unconscious.

Smoke will not go through closed doors, but it is apparently thick enough to hold doors open if it gets through. Like miasma, smoke can easily cross z-levels up or down through openings.
