Thick Haze Makes Air Quality Unhealthy

Many North Dakotans say they’re growing tired of a thick haze of smoke from Canadian wildfires that’s blanketed parts of the state for almost a week now.

An air quality map produced by the federal Environmental Protection Agency showed this morning that the region surrounding Fargo had some of most unhealthy air in the country.

Smoke from wildfires in northern Saskatchewan has been blowing as far south as Tennessee, with a thick haze extending through much of North Dakota and its surrounding states.

The air quality in Fargo is categorized as unhealthy.
