Officials project drift from Caldor Fire to dip to ground level in parts of Solano

FAIRFIELD — Clear skies experienced this week should end Friday when high-level smoke from various wildfires again drifts across the greater Bay Area region.

Officials with the Bay Area Air Quality Management District issued yet another air pollution advisory Thursday that’s in effect Friday and Saturday across the nine-county Bay Area region.

Overhead smoke is expected to cause hazy and smoky skies, but pollution levels are not expected to exceed federal health standards, the air district reports.

The advisory is a step below an air pollution warning – called a Spare the Air alert – that would trigger bans on most indoor burning (fireplaces, wood-burning and pellet stoves) and outdoor burning (fire pits and similar options), as well as recommendations for people most vulnerable to breathing polluted air to seek shelter indoors.
