It's everywhere, the dark clouds and burning smell of smoke left behind by last week's fires. And asthma patients are feeling the punch.

Doctors say there are a few things you can do to make life easier such as wearing a mask or staying indoors. Patients who have a history of asthma or allergies should stay indoors in air conditioning.

Experts also say patients shouldn't treat this lightly, but rather as a reminder to always be ready.

"When humidity is high I try to stay cool and if I have to deal with the heat, I just keep my medicines with me. I have my inhaler right here."

The American Lung Association also recommends having an air filter in your home to eliminate air particles and keep your home allergy free.
