BRIAN HEAD, Utah – The Utah Department of Environmental Quality says smoke from the Brian Head fire will have minimal health effects on Utahns.

The Utah DEQ says a high-pressure dome is dispersing the smoke at ground level but  it won’t greatly affect residents’ health.

Up higher in the air column, smoke is amassing and visibility in the area, including the national parks, will be affected.
