DAVIS COUNTY, Utah — State environmental officials are warning residents in some parts of Davis County about air quality as a wildfire burns near Bountiful.

PM 2.5 pollution is in the “unhealthy for sensitive groups” range and approaching “unhealthy”, the agency stated.

Smoke from the wildfire is creating high concentrations of particulates. Those with heart or lung conditions are encouraged to reduce physical exertion and outdoor activity.

The agency states that as winds shift throughout the day, smoke will travel north to Weber county and south to the Salt Lake Valley.
