FIRE INFORMATION - SEE CALFIRE WEBSITE OR INCIWEB - U.S. FOREST SERVICE WEBSITE

MCMILLAN FIRE - NEAR SHANDON UPDATE - 6/14/19 --- The McMillan Fire is now 100 percent contained - 1764 acres burned

SMOKE IMPACTS

San Luis Obispo County may experience periodic smoke impacts from small wildfires in and outside of San Luis Obispo County. The AQI may be in the moderate range at times from an increase in particulate matter and ozone.

Exposure to particle and ozone pollution can cause serious health problems, aggravate lung disease, cause asthma attacks and acute bronchitis, and increase risk of respiratory infections.

Residents are advised to use caution as conditions warrant. People with heart or lung disease should follow their doctors advice for dealing with episodes of smoke.

Additionally, older adults and children should avoid prolonged exposure, strenuous activity or heavy exertion, as conditions dictate.

SEE APCD WILDFIRE PAGE FOR MORE INFORMATION
