Arizona Fires, New Mexico Smoke

The Wallow Fire, in eastern Arizona south of Springerville, is now the largest fire in Arizona history — now having burned well over 780 square miles. It ahd the Horseshoe 2 fire further south have sent a lot of smoke over New Mexico and other areas, making visibility (and breatheability) very bad in places like Albuquerque and Denver.

As often happens, Albuquerque Journal cartoonist Trever captures the issue perfectly.
