Premiered: September 2, 2018 | 0:05:29

The recent wildfires in California burned for over a month covering over 229,000 acres, claimed eight lives, and destroyed more than a thousand homes. Flames are not the only danger — the smoke created by these fires drift for hundreds of mile contributing to air pollution in parts of California, Idaho, Oregon and Washington. PBS NewsHour Weekend speaks with John Upton to discuss these implications.
