How to avoid smoke exposure in areas affected by fires burning above the San Gabriel Valley



    Bad Air Quality in Inland Empire After Fires

    The San Gabriel Complex fire has left many Southern California residents plagued by smoke and ash. Tony Shin reports for the NBC4 News at 5 p.m. on Tuesday, June 21, 2016. (Published Tuesday, June 21, 2016)

    A smoke advisory was issued for Los Angeles County as the San Gabriel Complex fires continue to burn in the mountains above Duarte and Azusa Tuesday.

    Here are some of the suggestions LA County health officials have for the smoke-affected communities to avoid health issues related to the smoke. 

    • Avoid any unnecessary outdoor activity
    • Schools should suspend outdoor activities until conditions improve
    • Non-school related outdoor activities should be canceled, including practices and competitions in areas where there is visible smoke, soot, or ash
    • Keep indoor areas clean by closing windows and keeping doors closed
    • Avoid using air conditioners that draw air from outside

    Affected areas include portions of East San Gabriel Valley, Pomona/Walnut Valley, San Gabriel Mountains and the metropolitan Riverside area.

    The San Gabriel Complex fires forced evacuations and burned through more than 8 square miles of brush after starting Monday.
