Wildfire smoke blankets the Front Range

From an Article by the Coloradoan, News 9, June 29, 2016

Light winds from the northwest are forcing smoke from several western wildfires into the Front Range.

More than 200,000 acres are burning in the western part of the United States currently.

The smoke from those fires — as well as from the  Beaver Creek Fire (6,235 acres) in Jackson County in northern Colorado — have created poor air quality along the Front Range.

An Air Quality Advisory is in effect in Colorado for Jackson County and parts of Boulder and Larimer counties for thick smoke. People with respiratory problems are being advised to stay indoors as much as possible in these areas.
