Smoke from Canadian wildfires is causing some haze and air quality issues in Wisconsin.

The Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources says Milwaukee County currently has a "good" air quality rating, but in nearby Dodge County, the air quality is at a "moderate" level.

In Taylor County, the air quality is labeled "unhealthy for sensitive groups."

Here's what Monday's sunrise looked like in Port Washington:

The National Weather Service tweeted Sunday that most of the smoke is trapped in a layer between 3,000-5,000 feet above the ground.
