HAMILTON — Smoke from wildfires raging in neighboring states has poured into Western Montana blanketing the region for days and reducing air quality.

While the smoke has been constant all week, it's especially been a concern for school officials with Friday night football.

In the video attached is a live look out of our First Security Bank eye cam in Hamilton of the football field where the Broncs will soon face off against the Dillon Beavers.

This game, along with many others, was up in the air all week due to the smoke.

But tonight the match-up still has a green light despite red air quality levels marking the Bitterroot as "unhealthy."

In fact, that unhealthy rating is across the board for most of the area.
