The wildfires raging across Eastern Washington that claimed the lives of three U.S. Forest Service firefighters also sent a haze of smoke to Western Washington and the Puget Sound area this past weekend.
The haze covered the sky for most of Saturday and parts of Sunday, leading some areas to even notice the smell of charred debris. In Langley, Marie Lincoln snapped this shot of the sunrise over Langley Marina and the Cascade Mountain Range that showed a light red sun obscured by the smoky haze.
Fires have destroyed 200 homes, killed three firefighters and injured four others. The Okanogan County fire on the Canadian border has burnt more than 400 square miles.
