Smoke Will Hang Around

FAIRBANKS, Alaska- A combination of high pressure in the interior and low pressure in the Bering Sea has been kicking up strong winds. This is rekindling fires around the interior, plus the record heat and little rain isn’t helping. The past several days the interior has seen more smoke. Public Affairs Officer for the Alaska Fire Service, Mel Slater, says it’s hard to say where the smoke is coming from because there are a lot of fires and a lot of wind. They say the smoke will hang around as the high winds continue into Saturday night.
