What: Smoke monitor
Location: Dillon, MT
Narrative: Smoke monitor USFS R1-307 was deployed in Dillon, Montana on Friday, August 21st by the Beaverhead-Deerlodge National Forest.
The smoke monitor takes a reading every hour; however, it is important to note that the time zone is UTC (Coordinated Universal Time), and is 6 hours ahead of Mountain Daylight Time, so subtract 6 from the reading to determine the local time of reading.
