SPOKANE, Wash. -

We've confirmed several high school football games being canceled in our area due to smoke. 

So far we know that Ferris High School has canceled their game tomorrow night. We're told the team was playing another team from Denver and they canceled it on Thursday so that the Denver team would have enough time to cancel their flights.

We'll continue to update this list as soon as we get new information. 

According to the Greater Spokane League, the fate of all varsity games will be decided Friday between 11 a.m. and 12 p.m.
