Smoke could be seen as far as Blissfield, Michigan, and on Tuesday, as the winds shifted, that smoke was being blown far into the southern parts of the state. Several communities have issued notices about the smell of smoke, including Ypsilanti and Milan.
The Ohio EPA was at the incident site Tuesday afternoon, saying that based on readings from their hand-held monitoring devices, no chemicals have been detected in the smoke from the fire. The agency added that Delta's public water system is not affected by the firefighting water runoff. ■
