Active fires across the region will likely continue to produce smoke into the Northeast Blue Mountains, Lewiston-Clarkston Valley, and Camas Prairie. Make sure you keep your windows and doors closed to keep inside air as clean as possible and reduce the amount of time spent in smoky areas if possible.
