New Mexico wildfires cause bad air quality

Posted:

New Mexico - The New Mexico Department of Health is warning of adverse reactions to smoke from the wildfires.

Doctors say poor air quality associated with smoke is especially harmful to people with asthma, emphysema and cardiovascular disease.

The Environmental Department advises the public not to use swamp coolers if smoke levels are high.

They say the filters do not filter out smoke particulates.
