A smoke advisory has been issued for the Tustin area by the South Coast Air Quality Management District due to the ongoing slow-burning fire at the North Hangar. The advisory is set for 10 a.m. today through Wednesday at midnight.

  • Updates about the fire can be found on the Orange County Fire Authority ‘X’ – formerly Twitter -page
  • Most smoke impacts are localized at present, with light to moderate winds expected the rest of Tuesday
  • Air quality conditions may reach Unhealthy for Sensitive Groups in nearby neighborhoods
  • Strong Santa Ana winds are expected Wednesday morning onward, potentially pushing any remaining smoke toward the southwest

Conditions may change quickly due to fire activity and weather. Download the South Coast AQMDapp or visit www.aqmd.gov/AQImap to view current air quality in your neighborhood.

If you are in an area impacted by smoke:

  • Limit your exposure by remaining indoors with windows and doors closed or seeking alternate shelter.
  • Avoid vigorous physical activity.
  • Run your air conditioning and/or an air purifier. If possible, do not use swamp coolers or whole house fans that bring in outside air.
  • Avoid burning wood in your fireplace or firepit and minimize sources of indoor air pollution such as candles, incense, pan-frying, and grilling.
  • If you must be outside, a properly fit N95 or P100 respirator may provide some protection.
