Ashland Air Quality – Douglas Complex Fire

 

The Rogue Valley is cloudy with the smoke from the Douglas County Fire north east of Grants Pass (roughly 35 miles from Ashland) after lightning started a number of fires. While the Medford air quality has been rated poor for the time being by DEQ, the Talent/Ashland area is still rated at ‘good air quality’.
