COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (KKTV) - Two wildfires burning in Arizona are impacting people in Colorado.

A lot of smoke is being put up in the atmosphere as more than 138,000 acres have burned between the two fires as of Tuesday night. The Telegraph fire is burning east of Phoenix while the Mescal Fire is burning southeast of Globe. Smoke from the wildfires could be seen from Colorado Springs Tuesday night over the mountains.

While the smoke is expected to be elevated, it could cause some issues with air quality and visibility in parts of Colorado.
