Hazy Skies in Missouri from Western Wildfires

Rangers have set a small-scale, controlled fire in a forest in Tuolumne Meadows, Yosemite National Park, to prevent wildfires from spreading.

(Farmington) Smoke carried from wildfires ravaging the western United States, thousands of miles away, is filling the skies above Missouri, creating a haze and injecting intensified color into sunsets.

The National Weather Service says the smoke scatters the light differently.

The fires out west have scorched more than 6-thousand square miles in California and Oregon, killing at least 34 people in those two states.
