But air quality in parts of Napa, Sonoma and Solano counties - the city of Vacaville in particular - was "hazardous", the highest classification of air pollution.

According to officials, the smoke is the result of a wind shift that is pushing smoke from the Bay area fires, and a couple of prescribed burns in Madera County, into the Fresno area.

Smoke from fires can cause lung disease, asthma attacks and increase the risks of heart attacks and strokes, Valley Air officials said.

These tiny particles are about 3 percent of the diameter of a human hair, which makes them even more unsafe because they can be inhaled into the lungs and bypass the body's filtration systems, slipping directly into the bloodstream.

"If you have masks available, you should use them", said Kristine Roselius, a spokeswoman for the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.

People who are indoors should set their air conditioning to re-circulate to avoid bringing outside air into buildings.

Health officials warn fine particles of smoke can get into your lungs.

The same currents are also spreading the dirty air across the Bay Area - in some cases all the way from wine country to the South Bay.

"We're going to see that north wind pick up again tonight and into Thursday and that means drier, warmer air", Flannigan said Wednesday.

The Homeless Outreach Team (HOT) will also perform wellness checks throughout San Francisco and providing transportation (upon request) to shelters.

Office workers wearing face masks crowd the streets. Please keep in mind to check on your neighbors, especially the elderly or those who might be otherwise impaired by the conditions. These individuals should limit their exposure to smoky air by staying indoors as much as possible.

The issues with air quality are expected to extend into the weekend, a problem that's spurred the cancellation of the Virgin Sport "Festival of Fitness" planned for SF this weekend, event organizers say on their website.
