Smoke on the island

We are experiencing heavy smoke in and around Quadra due to the many fires burning in the Coastal Region. Due to changing wind direction and speed it is difficult to determine how long the smoke will be in our area.
We would like to remind residents that all open burning is prohibited, this includes outdoor propane fire pits and torches.
We are encouraging residents to be diligent about reporting what they believe could be a fire. As the layer of smoke is thick at times, when calling 911 it is helpful to describe what you see (is it a haze of smoke or a column of smoke? Is it specific to an area or wide spread?)
Please continue to be cautious and watchful.
