Sponsored by:

Sonora, Ca — Many were wondering if there was a large fire in the area late Friday as smoke and foggy skies filled the Mother Lode.

?Friday evening some fog moved in, but there has also has been some increasing air quality problems due to burn permits,? says Tuolumne County Health Officer Dr. Todd Stolp.

Stolp notes that smoke had accumulated in areas such as East Sonora to the point where the air is unhealthy to breathe. He notes that if visibility is only 3-5 miles, you may want to limit your outdoor activities.
