Smoke from wildfires in British Colombia has been cascading the sky in the southeastern corner of the Saskatchewan, but it hasn't affected those with respiratory health issues in any deadly or serious ways.
The smoke has become moderately more sparse in recent days, but at its thickest Environment Canada issued an air quality warning for the area and said that it could be damaging to those with existing health issues.
Dr. David Torr, consulting medical health officer for the Saskatchewan Health Authority, said that those suffering from respiratory illnesses got the worst of the health effects.
"Well the issues that have been noted is mostly in those who have respiratory complications, for example, asthma or chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, you know those who are normally stabilized... had more trouble breathing with the smoke depending on how much exposure they had and how much smoke there had been in the area."
There were no major health issues created by the smoke according to Torr.
Currently, firefighters are battling hundreds of wildfires raging out west.
