Area Fires Cause Bad Air Quality in Solano County

Area Fires Cause Bad Air Quality in Solano County

According to the Los Angeles Times, 21 people have died as a result of the fires that are still burning out of control and have already torched 3,500 structures and 160,000 acres of land.

Smoke from fires can cause lung disease, asthma attacks and increase the risks of heart attacks and strokes, Valley Air officials said.

"The control burn was planned for today, and due to conditions the control burn was canceled", he said. "They did not even do a test fire".

A Merced City Fire Facebook post from early Wednesday initially said the controlled burn was contributing to the smoke in the area, but it has since been corrected. Also in Napa County, the Atlas Fire spread to 25,000 acres and the Patrick Fire burned up 1,000 acres.

On Tuesday, air quality officials issued health and smoke advisories for all nine Bay Area counties, the second such warning issued this fall wildfire season. The Redwood Complex fire in Mendocino County has burned at least 29,000 acres.

Apple teams up with LG Display for foldable iPhone
Twenty-one percent of US survey respondents and 29% of USA iPhone owners plan to purchase an Apple Watch in the next year . Wednesday's report claims that LG created its own foldable OLED prototype two or three years ago.

But, for those in Solano County, much closer to the wildfires burning in both Napa and Sonoma counties, air quality remains at an extremely unhealthy level.

"The North Bay fires have devastated families, homes, businesses, and schools across the region and as first responders work tirelessly to put out the fires and aid those in need, Bay Area sports teams are unified in supporting relief efforts."

San Joaquin Valley air pollution officials have issued an air quality alert that extends into Saturday.

This report has been corrected from an earlier version.
