Don’t worry about the smoke

If you see smoke in the hills just northwest of the Hutton Settlement in Spokane Valley, don't worry about it. The Spokane Valley Fire Department is doing wildland fire training there through Friday. They are practicing lighting back fires, creating fire lines and putting fires out. The problem when I was up there this morning, however, is that everything was so damp from yesterday's rain that the back fires wouldn't stay lit. But things will dry out of the next couple of days, so there will be more smoke visible during the day.
