Approaching cold front may clear the air

SUMMIT COUNTY — Idaho is experiencing a firestorm similar to conditions seen earlier this summer in Colorado. This week, several major fires in Idaho blew up to massive size under dry, windy conditions, and the smoke from those fires is working its way into Colorado skies under a northwest flow.
A full listing of the active Idaho fires is online at the InciWeb.org website.
Extreme fire behavior was reported Tuesday at the 47,000-acre Trinity Fire, where homes are threatened and evacuations are in effect. The Trinity Fire was also creating its own weather with the formation of pyrocummulus clouds.
