Smoke Filling The Sky Saturday Came From Canada
Minneapolis, MN (Learfield) -- Smoke from the Canadian wildfire near Alberta should be cleared out today, but it had some Minnesotans staying indoors Saturday.
Another wildfire has burned nearly one-thousand acres in Hubbard County, in northern Minnesota. Southwest winds pulled the smoke into central Minnesota and the Twin Cities area for Saturday.
Air quality in Minneapolis-St. Paul, Duluth, Mankato and Rochester was rated very poor early yesterday (Saturday) by the National Weather Service. An air pollution warning was finally allowed to expire last night.
