8/2/2015 Status of Smoke and Fires in Washington

Multiple active fires around the state are impacting air quality. The Wolverine Fire continues to smoke in areas around Lake Chelan including the Methow Valley and the Okanogan Valley. The smoke is spilling into the Columbia Basin and impacting air quality all along towards Moses Lake also where air quality has ranged between Unhealthy and Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups today. There are also air quality impacts around Spokane today. Much of the smoke is probably coming from the Wolverine fire also but there are other fires in the area that could be contributing. It's hard to tell for sure where the smoke plume in the eastern part of the state is coming from.
