It's very smokey outside today. Limit your exposure to the smoke outside, keep your windows closed, use your air conditioning to stay cool.

The current smoke in the Southeast Fire Centre is a blend of smoke from the fires in the Kamloops and Southeast Fire Centre as well as from fires burning in the United States.
