Smoke Fouls Fairbanks North Pole Area

Jul 11, 2019

Wildfire smoke is impacting air quality in many areas of the state, with some of the worst conditions in the Interior, including at North Pole. The community is known for severe wintertime fine particulate pollution from wood and coal stove and boiler emissions, but as KUAC’s Dan Bross reports, this week’s wildfire smoke has been far worse.
