Several wildfires are currently burning in Washington State with containment is nearing on some. While wildfires are common in the summer, the vast majority of the state is unaffected, open for business and ready to receive visitors.
Smoky skies have pervaded the state during the last week with conditions ranging from moderate to unhealthy, but the extended forecast calls for clearing skies beginning today.
Roads are open and the state’s gateway airport, Seattle-Tacoma International Airport, has no travel advisories at this time.
The Washington State Department of Natural Resources also maintains an active fire map at https://www.dnr.wa.gov/Wildfires
