Medford, Ore. -- While the Two Bulls Fire may be close to 200 miles away from Medford, there are signs on the fire in southern Oregon.
A layer of smoke covered much of the Rogue Valley Sunday. As the season progresses the smoke will only get worse. Doctors said the smoky skies could be a health risk for young children, elderly people, and people with lung problems like asthma, COPD, and emphysema.
"It makes breathing a lot more difficult depending on how thick the smoke is so if you have those problems or are feeling the effects of the smoke just use common sense and get inside," Dr. Robin Miller said.
When the smoke gets more intense you can get a respirator mask from your doctors office or the hardware store. To check on the latest air quality reports you can click here: http://kobi5.com/weather/air-quality-map.html
