Are you strictly limited to having to do the effect in camera? Or do you have some flexibility in post production to get it done? Reason I ask is because there are a few different way you could go about doing it.
In camera 100%: What about getting some orange chalk and rubbing it onto a chalkboard and then cleaning it up with the erasers and then smacking the dust in front of cam? Close so it looks like a plume of smoke? That could work.
in camera compositing: You could shoot your own VFX plate kinda like this: https://www.actionvf...2-stock-footage use a strong backlight shoot on black and then composite it over your footage during the editing phase. The editor should be able to tint it orange and use a blending mode of "screen" so it becomes transparent over the footage. (or just buy a plate from the website i listed above or video copilot: https://www.videocopilot.net/products/action2/ )
100% VFX method: There are several programs that a VFX artist (and a smart individual watching youtube tutorials) could use to create a full smoke effect. Such programs are-

If you go this route, you would just need to make sure that if there is camera movement there is something that can be motion tracked. There are more out there too but of course require a VFX artist in post.
