Smoke from the Fort McMurray wildfire is drifting into west-central Saskatchewan, prompting an alert from Environment Canada.
The agency says smoke may produce poor air quality and reduced visibilities in some areas especially closer to the fire source and near the Alberta boundary.
Individuals may experience symptoms such as increased coughing, throat irritation, headaches or shortness of breath.
Children, seniors, and those with cardiovascular or lung disease, such as asthma, are especially at risk.
