Wildfire smoke brings orange start to Thursday

Wildfires in the northern section of the province have made the air in the Lakeland a little hard to take. Environment Canada issued a special air quality statement for the following regions on Thursday:

Co. of St. Paul near Ashmont St. Vincent and St. Lina
Co. of St. Paul near Elk Point and St. Edouard
Co. of St. Paul near Lindbergh and Frog Lake
Co. of St. Paul near St. Paul and Lafond

Smokey air is making breathing and visibility poor today. People with lung diseases, such as asthma and COPD, can be particularly sensitive to air pollution.

Environment Canada says to stay inside if you can today. They recommend finding a place that is cool and ventilated.
