Manitoba wildfire prompting air quality advisory

Parts of Manitoba are under air quality control due to wildfires.

Around Friday morning, Canada released a statement on air quality for Lif Rapids, Lynn Lake and Pukatawagan.

According to the statement, wildfires around Lake Lynn are creating smoke, air quality and poor visibility.

As the wind blows the smoke west of Saskatchewan, the weather agency expects conditions to improve overnight.

Around Canada, residents are more likely to develop severe coughs, sore throats, or shortness of breath. These include children at risk, the elderly, and those with cardiovascular disease or pneumonia.

The Climate Agency added that people should take precautions to reduce their exposure to wildfires, which is “a constant exchange of substances and gases that contain many chemicals that can be harmful to your health.

CTV News Winnipeg reported on Thursday that the evacuation had been ordered due to forest fires.
