How high does smoke go?

    Smoke usually only travels as high as the tropopause but in some cases make reach some kilometers above that. In other words, smoke from fires can reach the upper troposphere and the lower stratosphere. The troposphere is about 15km above sea level and the stratosphere is about 45km above sea level corresponding to about 10 miles and 30 miles, respectively.
