FOX 5's Tucker Barnes says we'll deal with that haze for much of the day Tuesday and into Wednesday.

The haze will impact much of the Mid-Atlantic area as well as parts of New England.

Tucker says hopefully the smoke and haze will dissipate by Wednesday afternoon.

The 537-square-mile Bootleg Fire is burning 300 miles southeast of Portland and is fueled by extreme weather which allows it to grow by miles each day.
