GUARDIAN reader John Kangas sent us these photos of the 30,000 acre Soda fire burning in Owyhee County Tuesday evening at sunset.
Kangas said if there is any shift in the wind, it could mean massive smoke settling into the Boise Valley. He noted the winds are currently out of the south, but a shift to the west could spell air quality problems in Boise.
U.S. 95 was closed just outside Marsing Tuesday.
Top image shows Lake Lowell near Nampa and the other was taken from just over the Owyhee foothills.
