There are three wildfires raging in California, and the smoke from those wildfires is stretching across the entire United States and is even arriving in metro Detroit and beyond.

Maps from the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association show smoke from the wildfires across much of the Lower Peninsula early Monday morning with the thickest being just north of metro Detroit.

As the day goes on, that smoke will stay present in the area through the evening, according to the NOAA before moving out around 7 p.m.

The three fires: Camp Fire, Woolsey Fire and Hill Fire are burning throughout much of the west coast and have left at least 31 people dead and many more missing.
