Canadian Wildfires Blow Smoke at NE Wyoming

Gillette, WY – The National Weather Service says smoke
from large wildfires in Saskatchewan, Canada, is making skies hazy in northeastern Wyoming and the Black Hills.

The Weather Service in Rapid City, S.D., says the smoke is entering the jet stream and winds are carrying it to the Black
Hills. Saskatchewan is more than 600 miles northwest of South Dakota.

The haze is reminiscent of that caused by Yellowstone, Big Horn Mountain and Black Hills forest fires in past year. But no major fires are reported burning in any of the Wyoming mountain ranges.
