Precautions urged as smoke impacts air quality

With smoke from wildfires across the west being carried into Wyoming, residents are urged to be aware of health problems the air can bring and take precautions.
As of July 28, the National Interagency Fire Center reported 81 active large fires were burning across 12 states.

On July 26, Airnow.gov showed air quality to be “moderate” and “unhealthy for sensitive groups” throughout most of Wyoming.
