Franklin, NC, November 11, 2016, smoke conditions

Denton Higdon captured images 1-5 for our HFA website on Wednesday, November 10, 2016. The last two images was news articles appearing in a local Chicago-area newspaper. Denton writes: 

Our Western North Carolina Mountains are on fire. Thousand of acre's have burnt and hundred's still on fire. The fires are within a 15 or 20 mile radius of Franklin. The smoke is unbearable here.  These photos were taken around 2pm in Franklin on Main Street.
