The wildfires burning in Trinity County has caused public health officials to open up clear air facilities for residents with respiratory problems.
Officials say people with asthma, heart disease and older adults are the one with the greatest risk experiencing symptoms.
All people should avoid strenuous work or exercise outdoors. They should avoid driving whenever possible.
Closing up a home by shutting windows and doors can give some protection from smoke.
County officials have opened up five centers for residents to use:
Solid Rock Church
Tule Creek Road, located in Hayfork
90 Corral Avenue, located in Hayfork
Van Duzen Community Center
591 Van Duzen Road, located in Mad River
201 Browns Ranch Rd., located in Weaverville.
After School Program Room
430 Red Hill Rd., located in Junction City.
251 Burnt Ranch School, Road (Classroom #6)
