I have another view of the fires that might be of some interest. I don't
believe I posted it here before. This is from a Chinese weather satellite
from Aug. 16:   (234KB)

If it looks like smoke, it is. This must have been around the height
of the fires. For reference, the Washington and Oregan coast is on
the left.
