Air Quality Advisories in Effect for Several Colorado Counties Due to Canadian Wildfires

Air Quality Advisories are in effect for several northern Colorado counties as smoke from Canada’s wildfires continues to move across the Rocky Mountain and Great Plains region. 

More than 1,000 active fires are burning in Canada. Of those, 651 are listed as “out of control.”

In addition, eastern Archuleta County, southern Mineral County and Hinsdale County are under an air quality advisory due to the Quartz Ridge and Bear Creek Fires burning in the San Juan Mountains 15 miles outside Pagosa Springs.
