Smoke from Quebec fire drifts over Vt.

Posted: Updated:
BURLINGTON, Vt. -

You may have noticed some hazy skies in Vermont Tuesday. That's because smoke from a forest fire in northern Quebec drifted into our region.

It can be harmful to young children, the elderly, people with lung ailments and especially people with heart disease.

The Vermont Natural Resources Agency has issued an air quality health advisory for Grand Isle County and parts of Chittenden and Franklin counties until 10 p.m. Tuesday. People at risk should avoid spending too much time outside.
