Wildfire smoke from Canada's Quetico Provincial Park caused a haze in the air as the sun set over Seagull Lake in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness earlier in the month.

DULUTH - The encroaching wildfires from Canada continue to threaten the borders of the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and worsen air quality throughout the state.

The Minnesota Pollution Control Agency on Tuesday extended its air quality alert to most of the state through Thursday morning.

Heavy smoke from several wildfires in Ontario and Manitoba traveled into northern Minnesota overnight, and its fine particle levels are ranked "very unhealthy" for everyone across north central Minnesota, the agency said in a news release.
