N. California air is worst in the world

(NBC) Smoke from the Camp Fire continued to smother the Bay Area on Friday and dropped the air quality in Northern California to the worst in the world, according to PurpleAir, an air quality monitoring app.

The poor air prompted most public school districts in the Bay Area to close their campuses Friday.

A Winter Spare the Air Alert has been extended through Tuesday. East winds blowing in the Delta were sending the smoke westward into the Bay Area, the weather service said. The smoke has forced several schools and universities in the Bay Area to shut their doors.

Burning wood, including manufactured logs or any other solid fuel, indoors or outdoors is banned through Friday, the Bay Area Air Quality Management District said.
