Smoke Advisory

Saturday, July 2, 2016 – Monday, July 4, 2016, issued July 1, 2016 at 3:00 p.m. The Pine Fire, which started the morning of June 30, 2016, is burning in a remote area of the Los Padres National Forest north of the city of Ojai in Ventura County. The fire has produced a substantial amount of smoke, and, as of the writing of this Advisory, is not expected to be contained until sometime later next week. While winds are blowing the smoke mostly away from the populated portions of Ventura County and should continue to do so through the holiday weekend, shifting winds may cause smoke to impact communities both upwind and downwind of the burn site. For areas directly impacted by smoke, particulate levels are likely to be elevated and could reach the Unhealthy level. People are urged to exercise caution and avoid vigorous outdoor or indoor exertion. Keep windows and doors closed or seek alternate shelter. Run your air conditioner if you have one. Keep the fresh air intake closed and the filter clean to prevent bringing additional smoke inside. For more information about the fire, see http://inciweb.nwcg.gov/incident/4830/, or the Los Padres National Forest Twitter feed at https://twitter.com/LosPadresNF. This Advisory will be updated as necessary on Tuesday, July 5, 2016. If you have air quality questions, please call 805-662-6960.
