Wildfires have wreaked havoc in California and northwestern regions of the country, including Idaho, where the Four Corners Fire has burned more than 13,700 acres as of Friday.
And the effects of that flame reached high school sports.
Although the fire is more than 60 percent contained, winds have blown heavy smoke into several areas where high school sports are played, creating unhealthy air quality that can pose a serious health risk.
Two of the school districts, West Ada and Boise, had an air quality index (AQI) of 165, which is above what officials consider safe — 150 to 200 is the range — and at a level where health risks can only to escalate.
Because of the alarming levels, sporting events that could not be held indoors were canceled, including much of the football games scheduled for Week 3.
There are no updates on when the games will be rescheduled, on KTVB.
