Recent wild fires could affect air quality in the North Coast

Eureka.,Ca-The North Coast Unified Air Quality Management District has been monitoring the Pawnee fire, County fire, and Petersburg fire since they began.

They says that here in the North Coast there is no need to take action, mainly because we are just far enough away, but because of dry conditions it only takes a change in the forecast for the air quality to go from “good” to “unhealthy”. Which is why it’s better to stay alert and have a plan before a public service announcement is issued.

The air quality management district would also like to inform the public that all vegetation burning is suspended for burn permits till Tuesday. The only location that is not suspended is Ferndale Volunteer Fire District.
