The fire that started back in March spread uncontrollably, causing over 49,000 acres to burn and destruction of over 18 structures. Officials said that it was the worst fire they’d seen in over 25 years. The cost to fight the fire was estimated to be about $4.2 million.
The damage caused isn’t isolated to just the forests and people’s homes, but also towards people living with COPD. The smoke makes it difficult for people living with COPD to live and breathe normally. COPD is either caused by smoking, excessive, long-term exposure to chemicals or other toxins, or long-term exposure to nitrogen dioxides.
