On Tuesday afternoon, a water-scooping airplane working a fire in northeastern Washington state crashed. The pilot walked away with minor injuries. It’s an Air Tractor 802, also known as a Fire Boss -- it looks like a crop duster on floats. It scooped 800 gallons of water from the Columbia River and was on its way to the Horns Mountain Fire when it went down. Ravi Saip is the General Manager of Airspray USA , the company that owns and operates the plane out of Chico, California. “It sounds as if our pilot experienced a catastrophic engine failure,” he said. “[The pilot] immediately pulled safely from the flight, declared a mayday and miraculously, he was able to walk away from the airplane even though it’s pretty well damaged,” Saip said. The aircraft was contracted to the Washington State Department of Natural Resources, but it was assisting on a fire that is currently being managed by the U.S. Forest Service. Washington State Public Lands Commissioner Hilary Franz took to Twitter to

Fires across the region have blanketed the Northwest in smoke. Blazes in California and British Columbia are also adding to the thick, reddish-gray haze. The Space Needle’s panoramic webcam shows a thick layer of reddish-gray haze over Seattle and that doesn’t change much nearly 300 miles east in Spokane. Along the Interstate 5 corridor for 140 miles from Medford, Oregon, north to Portland, the skies are filled with smoke that burns your eyes and scratches your throat. “We expect this to kind of stick around for the time being,” said Spokane meteorologist Bryce Williams. And, Williams says, expect poor air quality for the foreseeable future. “Usually it would take a strong low-pressure system that brings a cold front that could scour out the smoke,” Williams said. “But the fly in the ointment would be the additional fact that we are basically surrounded by fires in all directions, so no matter which way the wind blows it may clear out what we have now, but it’s also going to be

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Seattle Mariners have placed ace James Paxton on the disabled list with a forearm bruise, one day after the left-hander was struck by a line drive. Paxton was facing the third batter in the first inning Tuesday night when Jed Lowrie lined a ball back up the middle, hitting the pitcher hard. Paxton walked toward second base in obvious pain as a team trainer and manager Scott Servais rushed onto the field. Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez. After the game, Paxton told reporters he felt tightness in his arm and could not grip a baseball. X-rays were negative. Paxton is 10-5, including a no-hitter against Toronto, and a 3.68 ERA.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Robinson Cano is back in the major leagues with the Seattle Mariners after serving an 80-game drug suspension. The eight-time All-Star has a new position — first base, for the first time — and a new spot in the batting order, too. "It feels great to be back, especially the way the team is playing," Cano said before the game. "I'm excited. I was waiting for this moment." Cano's first game was fairly nondescript. He went 1 for 4 with a single in the Mariners' 3-2 loss to the Oakland Athletics and played error-free in his new position. Cano arrived in Oakland late Monday, woke up early Tuesday and was at the Coliseum taking batting practice underneath the outfield stands three hours before the scheduled first pitch.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — Seattle Mariners ace James Paxton was replaced by Felix Hernandez in the first inning Tuesday night after being hit by a line drive on his pitching arm. X-rays on Paxton's left arm were negative, and he was diagnosed with a forearm contusion. Paxton allowed a leadoff home run to Oakland's Marcus Semien and struck out Matt Chapman before Jed Lowrie lined a 2-1 pitch back up the middle. Manager Scott Servais and a team trainer rushed from the dugout to check on Paxton, who seemed hesitant to move his left arm. Paxton is 10-5 with a 3.68 ERA this season. He entered the day 11th among qualified starters with 3.6 wins above replacement, per Fangraphs.
