Smoke From Northern California Fires Drifting Into Bay Area
EXCERPT: NBC Bay Area
Bay Area residents who think they're smelling smoke are probably right.
Smoke from fires elsewhere in California and Oregon drifted into the Bay Area on Thursday, air quality officials said.
Fires in Nevada and Butte counties are generating smoke that's moving into the Bay Area.
"We expect the smoke to last through Saturday and potentially through the weekend," air district spokeswoman Kristine Roselius said.
Bay Area residents are advised to limit outdoor activities to avoid unnecessary exposure if they smell smoke.
