Is it true that smoke from wildfires can travel thousands of miles? Yes! If a wildfire is large enough, wind can blow smoke from the West Coast to the East Coast of the United States! Inside you'll find out how wildfires start, how they spread, and how researchers are studying wildfires in order to keep people safe. There's also a hands-on activity, a timeline, photos and diagrams.
