The Klondike Fire is 72% contained and 147,040 acres. Fire is most active at the confluence of Indigo Creek and Illinois River, Snail/Slim Creek drainages, Little Silver Creek, and Montana Springs.
High pressure settles in today and conditions will continue to be dry and windy. A strong Northeast will continue to move smoke into the Brookings area, potentially reaching unhealthy levels in the evening. Most areas, with the exception of those Southwest of the fire, will have good air quality today.
Conditions are expected to be dry into the coming week, potentially increasing fire activity and smoke. A strong Northeast wind is expected to continue until Tuesday afternoon, sending additional smoke into Brookings.
