COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. — Parts of southern Colorado are experiencing hazy skies from major wildfires burning in the West.

FOX21 Storm Team Skycam Weather Network cameras show haze from wildfire smoke a few minutes after 7 a.m. Monday, July 12, 2021.

Smoky haze will continue to be visible across the region and may get a little bit thicker as the day goes on Monday.

The haze is from dozens of fires burning in California, Washington, Montana, Idaho, and Arizona.

Three fires are currently active in Colorado. The Morgan Creek Fire, Muddy Slide Fire, and Sylvan Fire are burning in the north-central part of the state. They have burned a total of more than 11,000 acres as of Monday morning.

No wildfires have been reported in southern Colorado.
