Milli Fire bringing heavy smoke into Sunriver

The Milli Fire burning in the Three Sisters Wilderness brought smoke into Sunriver Wednesday afternoon.

People in the area should take the following precautions:

- Be aware of smoke concentrations in your area and avoid the places with highest concentrations. 

- Avoid strenuous outdoor activity in smoky conditions. 

- If you have heart disease, asthma or other respiratory ailments, or are over 65, you have a higher risk of illness from wildfire smoke. 

- Small children and pregnant women are also at increased risk. People in any of these groups might consider leaving the area until air quality improves. 

- People suffering from asthma or other respiratory problems should follow their breathing management plans or contact their healthcare providers.

While residents can view current air quality conditions at , Oregon's monitoring network does not capture air quality conditions in all communities. For this reason, it's important for residents to gauge air quality conditions where they live and take appropriate actions to protect themselves. 
Remember, local smoke levels can rise and fall rapidly, depending on weather factors including wind direction.
