The blanket of smoke over Colorado has brought attention to the wildfires happening all across the Western United States since the start of the year. As of September fifth 7.8 million acres of land have burned across nine states. Below you can view a map that shows the amount of smoke as it travels across the country. Air quality was determined as hazardous but is clearing up Thursday with hopes that air stays that way.
