FRONT RANGE - Smoke from the Colorado wildfires will bring poor air quality across the Front Range, according to the Colorado state air-quality forecast.

Areas from Fort Collins south to Denver and Parker and southwest to Castle Rock are dealing with air-quality levels that are unhealthy for sensitive groups. Small children, the elderly and people with lung disease like asthma are encouraged to stay indoors.

People may consider limiting outdoor activities because of the moderate smoke in the skies. If visibility is less than five miles in your area because of smoke, it has reached unhealthy levels.
