Smoke from the fire in Larimer County and neighboring states are sending a lot of smoke into the air. That can be a problem for some people, especially those with respiratory illnesses, heart disease and the very young or very old.
Some of the symptoms doctors say to look for include: coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath, chest pain and a scratchy throat. You may need to avoid being outside for long periods of time.
Doctors say you can run your air conditioner or furnace fan to help circulate the air inside your home. But make sure your air filters say “clean.”
If you are having serious problems, go to the emergency room or contact a health professional immediately.
