The smoke in the air is affecting a lot of people, whether it is because of breathing problems or allergies.

We have some information from the Red Cross how to cut down on the amount of smoke you are exposed to.

First, keep your windows and doors closed. Also, use the recycle or re-circulate mode on the air conditioner in your home or car.

Don’t use candles or gas stoves. Lastly, don’t use your vacuum cleaner; it can stir up the particles that are already inside of your home.
