Russia has given Seattle Beautiful Sunsets

According to weathermen 

the beautiful sunsets we have been seeing

are because of a wild fire in Siberia. 

Eastern Russia is on fire.  Smoke from 67 wildfires are burning near Lake Baikal.  Smoke from the last two weeks has risen into the jet stream and has drifted here to the Pacific Northwest.   According to the news Russian fire fighters are not doing much to put the fires out.  Rain in Seattle should help with the smoke but in Russia the fires could burn all summer long.
