According to the National Weather Service Weather Forecast Office Milwaukee/Sullivan, Wisconsin, lightning started a wildfire known as the Pagami Creek Fire in the arrowhead of Minnesota about August 18, 2011. By Sunday, AUgust 18l, 2011, the fire grew to about 4500 acres when an impressive smoke plum also grove. On Tuesday, September 13, 2011 the fire had grown to 60,000 acres. Northwesterly winds brought smoke from the fire into Wisconsin and Illinois.

At 4 PM on September 13, 2011 short-term particulate matter levels were excessively high in southeast Wisconsin. According to the Department of Health Services (DHS) this can cause problems in sensitive individuals, including those with lung or cardiovascular disease. In healthy people, symptoms of smoke exposure usually include irritation of eyes, nose, and throat, or breathing discomfort. More severe symptoms may include chest tightness, wheezing, shortness of breath, and coughing.

As of 6:00 p.m. Tuesday, the AIRNOW.GOV website from the U.S. EPA did not show any updates regarding particulate matter or smoke from the Minnesota wildfire/forest fire.

Depending on the smoke concentrations and an individual’s sensitivity to smoke, actions to take include remaining indoors with the doors and windows closed, using a high-efficiency particulate air (HEPA) filter on air conditioners, reducing other sources of indoor air pollution, and leaving the area if an individual has particular sensitivity.

Heavier smoke may be headed our way from the Pagami Creek Fire in or near Superior National Forest this evening. Winds are expected to be from the north from 3:00 p.m. until 8:00 and then return from the northwest through September 14, 2011.

Weather Underground, the nation’s first online weather service, began offering all an interactive map showing active wildland fires and associated smoke cover across the United States and Canada in July 2008.
