A Spare the Air alert will be in effect through Friday in the Bay Area as thick smoke from wildfires continue to spread throughout the area, according to the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
Friday will mark the 25th day in a row in which the air district has issued alerts.
“Today, specifically, we’re expecting air quality to be even worse than yesterday,” Walter Wallace with the air quality district said Thursday.
