Smoke In Nederland – Don’t be alarmed!

There is a lot of smoke blowing around this morning so we contacted fire dispatch to see if there is a fire near Nederland. Dispatch advised that there are no known fires at this time in the area. The smoke blowing in is believed to be riding the jet stream and blowing in from the fires burning in the southwest.
