Air quality worsens
Smoke continued to settle across the Inland Northwest throughout Wednesday evening and this morning as wildfires spread.
The haze delivered a spectacular sunset; however the region’s air quality dipped into the unhealthy zone for people with respiratory problems, according to the latest information from the Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency.
Residents in cities west of Spokane closer to the fires across the dry eastern slopes and foothills of the Cascade Range are coping with ash and hazardous air quality.
In Spokane the air quality is measured hourly.
