@Happy11311′s tweet translated by Fukushima Diary:

I saw the black smoke well too. It came out from the chimney of common spent fuel pool. I don’t know details but I wonder if it was the smoke of boiler.. It’s not a trouble like fire.

The smoke continues for over 20 minutes in this time lapse video from January 7, 2013 (20 times faster than actual speed):
