Air quality still a problem for some

SPOKANE, Wash. - The air quality continues to be a problem in the Inland Northwest from wildfires burning all over the state.

Some sporting events were canceled Friday night because the air was so bad.

The air quality on Saturday was still in a moderate stage but unhealthy for sensitive groups of people.

Air quality still a problem for some

The air is considered unhealthy in Pullman and hazardous in Lewiston and Wenatchee.

Saturday at Nevada Park in North Spokane, kids as young as five-years-old were playing tackle football. The smoky skies didn't help any players, but coach Titus Lucas says the smoke didn't bring anybody down.

"In my opinion the air quality is decent, it's not great, but like I said I have allergies," Lucas said.

In fact, none of the parents we talked with said they're little players had trouble. Especially as they look to next week's game in Wenatchee that may be canceled because it has unhealthy air to play in.

Nobody was sidelined by Saturday's air, but some on the sideline are suffering because of it.

"The past week's been tough she's been taking her inhalers regularly," parent Sarah Northcutt said.
