CHICO, Calif. - The 90,000-acre Camp Fire has created a massive amount of smoke to be pushed into the entire county of Butte, which means poor air quality for North State residents.

Action News Now spoke to Lisa Almageur from Butte County Public Health to discuss how people can protect themselves with an N-95 mask to avoid breathing problems by the fire's smoke.

Almageur strongly suggests people avoid going outside, especially the young and elderly who are the most susceptible.

She also says the heavy smoke can create symptoms that indicate people should seek a doctor.

The Butte County Public Health has a link to find N-95 masks around the North State on their Facebook.
