Air Quality Alert for Treasure Valley Thru Wednesday


Wildfire smoke and poor air quality will continue to be a fixture in the Treasure Valley for much of the week as fires burn in Idaho and throughout the West.

For the past several days, smoke has turned the sun into an eerie red disc in the sky and has forced many people inside.

The Boise National Weather Service tells the Idaho Press, there’s a lot of smoke that has come from the Oregon fires, and now we’re getting a lot of smoke coming from California — and that’s probably going to continue through Wednesday.

Idaho’s Department of Environmental Quality has put out an air quality warning for the Treasure Valley through Wednesday due to the unhealthy levels of smoke in the air.
