Smoke impacts Montana in a number of ways. During the summer, wildfires both here in Montana and far away can cause significant smoke impacts to our communities. During the winter, inversions can trap pollutants in our valleys. Open burning can also be a source of smoke. Here you can find resources to learn about current air quality, wildfire forecasts, open burning rules, and health effects from smoke and fire.
