Wildfire Smoke Descends on Western Washington

The smoky haze hanging over Puget Sound blew in with strong winds from fires in Eastern Washington. These winds, paired with the dry conditions in Western Washington, increase the chances of a large wildfire event west of the Cascades. Wildfires have already sparked up in and around Sumner, Enumclaw, Everett and other outlying areas of King County over the last few weeks.
