Smoke haze in Clatsop County

Astoria Fire Department is advising that there may be a smoke haze in the Clatsop County area due to a couple of very large wildland fires in southern British Columbia.  The air may appear cloudy or bluish in color and the odor of wood smoke may be present.  The haze is caused by the recent dry weather and southern winds.

However if you are unsure of where the smoke or haze is coming from, please do not hesitate to call 911 so that we may have the fire department investigate and verify there is no fire.
