From staff reports

Spokane woke up on Friday to the cleanest air it’s had for days.

Two of the four air quality monitors in Spokane County were registering “good” air at 7:35 a.m. Two other others measured “moderate” air.

The fresh air may not last, however. The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency predicts “unhealthy” air later today.
