Fire in the mountains just south of us in Draper, Utah. See the Salt Lake Tribune or Deseret News articles.

Best photo I've seen of it - photo by Rich Legg

Wind was blowing from the south yesterday, so we could really smell it. In the time it took to drag the garbage and recycle bins to the curb, my eyes were watering. Had the house closed up and air conditioning on since it was upwards of 97 F yesterday - was still 80 F and stunk like smoke at 12:30 a.m. so I kept the house closed up overnight.

Much better this morning. A cold front rolled in, shifted the winds in the other direction and dropped the temperature to 70 F.

Could still see smoke rising from the side of the mountain from our house, but it wasn't as big as it was yesterday.
