There is a 300,000 acre fire around Salmon Idaho. The smoke between Miles City and Broadus is probably coming from a fire southwest of Broadus, maybe 20 to 30 miles away.

If you look at the pass cameras at the MDT website, the whole freakin' state is covered with smoke. It is terrible here in Helena.

Just checked the map. I am not seeing any fire anywhere around Brodus. The closest fire to this area was in the Big Horns south of Story. It is about 50% contained.

You guys are lucky that you haven't had the smoke until now. On Sunday the visibility here was about 5 miles. I could not see the mountains south of town, and on all the mountains around town it was not possible to pick out details on them. It's been really bad here for over a month now.

Jackson Hole is on fire now too.

My apologies to Don. This morning there is a fire showing up 30 miles south of Broadus or about 4 miles north of Morehead. It is at the south end of the Taylor creek fire from earlier this year.

There is also a new fire 15 miles northeast of Roundup.

I live near Broadus and I checked the sky and there was a big plume of smoke all afternoon and there was and probably still is a fire around 25 miles Southwest of Broadus, according to the people I talked with who have land in that area.
