Wildfires in Washington and Oregon are causing smoky skies in West Vancouver. An air quality advisory is in effect.

Different people respond differently to smoke, and some people are at higher risk of experiencing health effects.

Persons with chronic underlying medical conditions should postpone or reduce outdoor physical activity until the advisory is lifted, especially if breathing feels uncomfortable.
