THRU 0100Z JULY 14, 2005
Alaska/Western Canada: Fire activity in Alaska has diminished since yesterday but continues unabated and might even have increased in the Northwest Territories. Cloudiness is making smoke detection difficult throughout the area but smoke or smoke mixed with haze was seen earlier today in the Great Bear Lake region. Central Canada: Dense smoke from the numerous ongoing fires in northern Saskatchewan and Manitoba is moving eastward. The area encompassed is smaller than last night but thick smoke can still be seen over northern Saskatchewan Manitoba and Ontario. Washington: A fire in southern Okanogan County is producing a smoke plume that extends to the southeast almost reaching the Idaho border.
