Thread Name: BS: Mudcatters near fires out west
Subject: RE: BS: Fires in the Western US and Canada
I searched but didn't find anything; if I had I'd have resurrected it. Oh well.

We currently have 771,271 acres actively burning here in Idaho, or about 1,200 square miles (or for you Others, like Canadians, 312,122 hectares -- but Canada has its own fires). That's a lot of smoke, not including the fires in Oregon, Washington, Northern California, and Montana.
