Wind patterns had brought smoke from fires in the Northwest Territories, Alberta and Fort Nelson causing a smoky fog to cover the city. That has subsided somewhat, and the advisory has been lifted.

The provincial air quality objective for coarse particles is 50 micrograms per cubic metre, averaged over 24 hours. As of 7:00 a.m. this morning, the 24 hour rolling average was 14 micrograms per cubic metre at the North Peace Cultural Centre.

As the air in the Energetic City is still smoky, residents are still cautioned that if they experience difficulty in breathing, chest pain or discomfort, and the sudden onset of cough or irritation of airways they should contact their health care provider.
