September 24, 2012 — Smoke advisory for Edmonton due to northern fires.

Forest fires in northwestern Alberta have prompted a smoke advisory for the Edmonton area.

Alberta Health Services says air quality is variable in the region because of weather conditions and prevailing winds. 

People should be aware of any irritation in the eyes or throat and possible shortness of breath. 
Individuals with breathing problems, heart ailments or asthma may notice their condition worsening. 

The agency suggests reducing physical activity or staying indoors with the windows closed if symptoms persist.
