Smoke from forest fires in the Southeast spread as far north as Boston and Upstate New York Sunday, reducing visibility and causing problems for people with respiratory difficulties. The National Guard was called out over the weekend in Virginia, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Kentucky to help weary fire crews. More than 6,000 firefighters battled the flames Sunday, and one of them reportedly died of a heart attack while fighting a blaze in Laurel County, Ky.
