The Grand Fire is currently burning at the border of Los Padres
National Forest and Kern and Ventura counties. Smoke is impacting
portions of I-5 and communities downwind.  

The South Coast Air Quality Management District issued a smoke
advisory for Friday May 17, 2013. Air quality may reach Unhealthy
levels in northwestern portions of Los Angeles County including
the San Gabriel Mountains. Communities in the Santa Clarita
Valley area may be impacted by air quality levels that are
unhealthy for sensitive groups. Air quality may worsen due to
fire behavior and weather conditions.

The California Air Response Planning Alliance (CARPA) was formed
in 2006 by the California Air Resources Board, the US
Environmental Protection Agency, and the Governor's Office of
Emergency Services. CARPA's mission is to provide actionable
incident response information to protect public health and the
environment from the impacts of accident or deliberate releases
of hazardous compounds into the air.
