Fires burning in nearby states including the Moose fire, and the Elmo fire that is currently at zero percent contained and 13,000 acres are creating hazy skies in Billings.

Our smoke season is officially here, according to the NWS.

If you have breathing complications such as COPD and asthma, try to avoid being outside for long periods of time.
