Health Advisory Issued Due To Smoke

An air quality health advisory has been issued for areas of central and northwest Colorado, including Moffat, Routt and Rio Blanco County. Smoke from the Big Red and Deep Creek fires, which are burning in Routt County, is mixing with smoke from fires occurring all over the western United States, including multiple fires in Utah, Idaho, Oregon and Montana.  The heavy smoke has resulted in unhealthy air quality conditions. If the smoke causes respiratory issues, those affected are advised to remain indoors. This is especially true for those with heart disease, respiratory illnesses, the very young and the elderly. For additional information on the health advisory and the air quality, click here.
