Smoke from Raging California Fires Poisons the Air of Reno/Sparks Nevada

Live cam shot taken this morning of the smoke lingering above the city of Reno (far right).  The Grand Sierra casino at center and the Nugget casino in adjacent city Sparks at far right.  Sad that the smoke is from burned redwood and pine trees in the forests of California, along with all the poor, fleeing wildlife.  A firebug woman was caught and arrested, accused of starting the fires in some of them.  (Click image to enlarge full scale.)
