Concentrations of smoke may vary depending upon location, weather, and distance from the fire.

"By the time we've looked at requesting federal assistance, that's indicative of a well above-average fire season", said Turcot.

The Puget Sound Clean Air Agency issued an Air Quality Alert on Monday that includes all of Snohomish County.

The high levels of fine particulate matter are expected to persist until a noticeable change of weather or fire conditions occurs. Green dots are good, yellow are moderate, orange are unhealthy for sensitive groups, red are unhealthy and maroon are hazardous.

The pollution created by the smoke and particles in the air can aggravate their diseases, leading to increased medication use, and more doctor/emergency room/hospital visits.

Those recommendations are especially important for sensitive groups, Wineke noted. Of particular concern, said the release, is exposure for infants, the elderly and those with diabetes, and lung or heart disease.

Mount Rainier, which usually dominates much of Washington's horizon, was scarcely even visible from inside the national park Tuesday, said Kevin Bacher, the park's volunteer program manager. A high pressure system is pushing upper-level wildfire smoke down. That fire may be contained by September 1.

Lightning has sparked most of this year's blazes but some 404 are believed to have been caused by humans.

And it's unclear when the smoke might leave the region. If you've got plans to run a marathon today, keep your eye on any updates to the air quality index.

Papish said the wildfire conditions seen this week are the continuation of a trend. Just keep in mind to use your best judgment, monitor air quality, and talk with your doctor.
