Smoke from wildfires in northern Arizona dropped a hazy veil over Summit County Monday, June 13. There are no active wildfires in Summit County, according to the Summit County Office of Emergency Management.

Today’s air quality rating is moderate, and people sensitive to air particulates should consider reducing outdoor physical activity.

A fire 6 miles north of Flagstaff, Arizona, began in the morning Sunday, June 12, officials with Coconino National Forest reported. Multiple nearby areas were evacuated Sunday, they said.



Summit County has a moderate fire danger, according to Red, White & Blue Fire Protection District. Fire danger increased today due to warm temperatures and winds drying out fuels, the district reported.
