Where Is The Smoke Coming From

Smoke can come from various sources such as wildfires, factories, cars, and cigarettes. In North America, the smoke that found its way to the eastern U.S. likely originated from a cluster of fires near the border of the Canadian provinces of Manitoba and Ontario, just north of Minnesota .

When you see smoke in the sky it may be originating from a relatively local fire or a fire that is occurring several hundred miles away .

The smoke from wildfires can travel thousands of miles and affect air quality in areas far away from the fire .
