You might see a bit of a haze outside today.

The Kapuskasing Fire Department says that currently the wind direction is northernly and with that wind smoke is being brought from bush fires in the area into town.

The department says that due to this you might see a haze or catch a whiff of the smell of smoke in the air during the day.

If you have any health or respiratory problems such as asthma it would be best to take precautions while the smoky haze endures.

The department also says they would like to thank everyone for being cautious and respecting the fire ban.

There is no timeline for when the smoke will dissipate.
