Washington Smoke Map

*The map above is not able to display all state air quality monitors. Click here to see all monitors in Washington: WA Ecology Air Monitors

Note: Some users might notice intermittent discrepancies in colors shown on the map of air quality monitors above, and those reported on the Department of Ecology's official page. This is because Ecology believes their method of calculating the air quality category (i.e. “Good”, “Moderate”, Unhealthy” etc) is more protective of public health in Washington. If in doubt as to which better represents public health risk, use the more stringent of the two (i.e. the map showing worse air quality).

Kittitas County Press Release: Range Fire near Badger Pocket

Public Service Announcement

Range Fire near Badger Pocket

Kittitas County, WA -07/15/2014 - Sheriff's Office requests members of the public avoid the Lower Badger Pocket area in support of the fire fighting efforts.

We have a large wild-land fire on the Yakima Firing Center which is moving towards the Badger Pocket area in South-Eastern Kittitas County. Local Fire Fighters are working in the area and are being hindered by unrelated vehicle traffic. The fire has moved within a 1/4 mile of the agricultural and residential areas. We are requesting that all but local Badger Pocket residents refrain from entering the area and that local residents minimize vehicle movement in the area. Our firefighters need to be able to move their apparatus freely to maximize their fire-fighting efforts. On behalf of the Kittitas County Sheriff's Office and Emergency Management, we appreciate everyone's cooperation.
