A Facebook Group wants everyone to turn on their fans and blow the wildfire smoke back into Canada.

A statement on the group's Facebook page reads:

There are roughly 550,000 residents of the Spokane, Washington metropolitan area.


To get rid of this smoke, we have to work together as a community. After much deliberation and mathematical calculation, we have figured that it is absolutely possible for us to blow this smoke away with high powered fans. This Friday, every resident must place at least 5 box fans on their roof.


Turn your fans on to the highest setting, and aim them toward northeastern Canada. Team work makes the dream work.

Let’s do this, Spokanites. Let’s send this smoke right back to those Canucks!


Make sure to share the event with all your friends so everyone is informed!

The event is going to happen on Friday August 24th at 12 PM - it seems pretty simple right?

You put 5 box fans on every rooftop in Spokane and that should do it...I'm sure if Yakima and Tri-Cities joined in, we'd easily send the smoke a packin'. You can check out the link and event here.
