FAIRBANKS - Monday's scorching temperatures caused several wildfires in Interior Alaska to blow up. A reported 649 fires have burned more than 3 million acres in Alaska so far this season, putting the state on pace to break the 2004 record wildfire season record.

While the official high temperature in Fairbanks was 89 degrees on Monday, just shy of the record of 90 degrees, thermometers throughout the area showed temperatures several degrees warmer.

Heavy smoke was degrading the air quality in and around Fairbanks Tuesday, with visibility reduced to less than a mile in many areas. At noon, the state Department of Environmental Conservation Air Quality site showed concentrations of PM2.5 particulates at 315, a level deemed hazardous.

Paulette told me today the smoke was as bad as it was in 2004..I knew yesterday's 90 degree weather would be bad for the fires..the smoke now is some of the worst I've seen. I'm glad it cooled off and is in the 60s today..90 is way too hot for here!!
