Several wildfires burning in the Sierra Nevada are bringing smoke impacts to the Valley air basin and local air officials expect this pattern to continue through the weekend, according to the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District.
The French fire is sending smoke to mountain communities in Merced, Madera, Fresno and Tulare counties. Wind shifts may bring smoke from the El Portal, Dark Hole and Sand fires to other parts of the air basin, including the Valley floor.
The Kern County Fire Department is receiving a number of calls regarding smoke in the area of the Kern River Valley related to these wildfires burning, and wanted to inform the public of the source of the smoke.
