North State residents smelled smoke when they woke up Saturday and many were breathing air at unhealthy levels.

Blame the smoky air and haze on fires burning in Siskiyou County and Oregon, according to Craig Shoemaker, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in Sacramento.

"There are several fires going on right now in the northern part of California and Oregon," he said Saturday. "They're putting out quite a bit of smoke."

A monitor that measures particulate matter in Anderson put the air quality in the unhealthy range as of 5 p.m. Saturday, according to the Shasta County Air Quality Management District website.

Shoemaker pointed to wildland fires in the Klamath National Forest along Highway 96, the Six Rivers National Forest, and a large blaze west of Etna in the Marble Mountain Wilderness Area.

"There's also a lot of fire activity west of Crater Lake and the whole stretch there," he said.

An air pollution alert that was issued Thursday warning people with health issues to avoid outdoor activities persisted into the weekend.

"In the pattern we're in, it's going to be pretty hazy and smoky into next week," Shoemaker said.
