Wildfires in Southern Oregon and Northern California continue to have a large effect on the air quality in those areas and neighboring states. The fires that are the largest producers of smoke in California are Monument, River, McCash, Antelope, Dixie, and Caldor. Several fires in Western Oregon are also contributors. After receiving rain in the last few weeks fire activity has decreased significantly in Washington, Idaho, and Montana.
