    So we in Honaunau Valley had the Hokukano Ranch fire sitting in our valley and now the Yee Hop Ranch smoke has arrived. Gads, can’t they use ocean water to put it all out? A week or more of smoke day and night is not healthy. I wonder what the particulate count has been? The smoke from both fires is worse than vog. So enough already!
