With a combo of windy, dry and warm conditions for our Wednesday afternoon, a Red Flag Warning has been issued for all counties along and east of the I-25 corridor between 12pm and 7pm this afternoon. PLEASE no outside burning, and if you see smoke, report it as soon as possible! Head over to the Weather tab for more information on the rest of the week.
Smoke from the Hayman Wildfire is filling the air across the Front Range and Southern Colorado. Many people have called 911, reporting smoke and complaining of breathing problems.
Some Springs daycares are keeping children inside if they have asthma.
Here are some things you can do to protect your lungs from the smoky air:
Continue taking medication as prescribed by your doctor
If you need to go outside, cover your nose and mouth with a wet cloth
Avoid exercising outside
