SALT LAKE CITY — Each Tuesday we take a look back at the past week in news from across Utah, showcasing photos and videos submitted by users.

Utah is no stranger to haze, but this week is the result of a massive and tragic fire in Washington. Many noticed the haze in our state and photographed smoky valleys and colorful sunsets.

The state also saw its fair share of tragedy on our freeways last weekend. One crash resulted in the death of a father and daughter, and a fatal, two-car crash that ended with a car fire.
