As Wildfires Blaze, Internet Asks “Are You Ok, Idaho?”
It's that time of year when skies are smokey, forests are vulnerable and thousands of local heroes jump into action to keep us, our lands, our property, and our state safe. It's forest fire season.
As temperatures continue to remain higher than we're used to this late in the summer, fires continue to blaze across Northern California, Oregon, and here in Idaho, especially. If you're used to just being in the city, fires may not really phase you and unfortunately, unless the air quality in town is bad due to these fires, the general population may not know they're going on or how hard our first responders are working to put them out.
Currently, a few different fires are impacting Idaho and it's causing the internet to check in on us. We're used to being under the internet spotlight for something crazy, here in Idaho--whether it's a viral video, an abnormal political stunt, or things of this nature.
A recent map of wildfire smoke makes it look like Idaho doesn't even exist and the internet is asking..."are you OK?"

Woof. They went there.
