FORT ST. JOHN, B.C. – A special air quality statement that was issued by Environment Canada because of a large amount of smoke in the air remains in effect for all of Northeast B.C. today.
The smoke is not emanating from any local wildfires, and could be coming from wildfires that erupted elsewhere in the province over the long weekend.
People with pre-existing health conditions, the elderly, infants, children and sensitive individuals are more likely to experience health effects.
