Some of the lightning strikes from Sunday and Monday are developing into full blown wildfires and air quality is deteriorating in various places around the state.   Fire managers and air quality experts are working to get a good picture of what all is happening and will continue to provide forecasts and updates on this site to help keep citizens informed of air quality conditions and risks.

The seriousness of the situation is reflected by the Governor's declaration of a State of Emergency in 20 Eastern Washington counties.
