As fires continue to burn around the region, the smoke continues to pour into eastern Idaho raising some concerns about air quality.

According to the Department of Environmental Quality the air quality is moderate.

That means groups that are unusually sensitive should limit prolonged physical activity outside.

Medical professionals say even individuals in lower risk groups should be aware of the air quality before heading out.
"Well, go out and enjoy things as much as you can," said Dr. David Parry.  "If you really do have those respiratory problems, it's better to stay indoors in an air conditioned building if possible."

The DEQ expects the air quality to remain in the moderate category for the near future.
