Smoke is in the air in Northern and Eastern parts of the state. But that haze isn’t from Wyoming, it’s coming from wildfires burning in Alaska and Canada.
Ralph Estell with the National Weather Service in Riverton says Canada’s fire season has started off very differently from Wyoming’s.
"We’ve had a pretty wet end of spring beginning of summer time period. It’s been pretty dry up there and their fire season has kind of exploded because of that," says Estell.
So far, 13,000 residents in Saskatchewan have been evacuated because of the fires.
