CHEYENNE, Wyo. — Those in Wyoming seeing smoky skies need not worry, as it’s not a sign of a fire in the state.

Instead, the National Weather Service of Cheyenne says the smoke has made its way from Arizona, where there is a wildfire near Flagstaff. The smoke has been carried to Wyoming by atmospheric winds.

These smoky skies are likely to stick around until late this afternoon.
