RITZVILLE – The Lind-Ritzville/Sprague football team may be practicing indoors all week, thanks to smoky conditions caused by two nearby wildfires.

The Winona Fire is burning east of Ritzville near the Adams-Whitman County line near the small town of Winona, north of LaCrosse. And to the northeast, the Gray Fire is burning along Interstate 90 near Tyler.

Both fires ignited Friday, blanketing much of the region, including Adams County in thick smoke.

The Spokane Regional Clean Air Agency on Saturday recommended cancelations of outdoor activities around the northeast quarter of the state.
