Wildfires – Canada
Smoke from large wildfires in Canada’s Alberta province has drifted into five U.S. states and is causing haze and air quality issues. The smoke has drifted into Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, Washington state and Wyoming.
More than two dozen fires are burning in Alberta and 10,000 people have been forced from their homes. The government agency Alberta Wildfire reports the largest blaze is out of control about 450 miles (733 kilometers) north of Edmonton and has burned 887 square miles (2,300 square kilometers) of land.
