The smoke from wildfires in B.C. is once again sparking air quality advisories for parts of Saskatchewan.
Environment Canada has issued special air quality statements covering the south-central portion of the province from Moose Jaw down to Assiniboia over to Estevan. Regina is also included in the advisory.
The smoke is drifting into the province from Alberta causing poor air quality and reduced visibility.
People in the affected areas may experience symptoms like coughing, throat irritation, headaches and shortness of breath.
Environment Canada warns that seniors, young children and people with lung diseases such as asthma are particularly at risk of experiencing health effects.
Westerly winds and a cold front coming in from Alberta are expected to clear away the smoke later on Friday.
