The Douglas County Health Department issued a statement warning South Omaha residents about the air quality after the wild fires in Council Bluffs yesterday, April 22.

They say parts of South Omaha may have unhealthy air quality for specific groups of people. These include those with heart and lung disease, older adults and children have a greater risk because of the ash and smoke in the air.

The majority of Douglas County is expected to have moderate air quality today, they say.
