Solano County

Smoke alert lifted for Solano

By From page A5 | October 02, 2013

FAIRFIELD — An air quality alert from the Winters hay fire has been lifted for Dixon and Vacaville, though not for the Winters area and western Yolo County.

The Yolo-Solano Air Quality Management District removed Dixon and Vacaville from its air alert on Monday morning. The hay fire north of Winters broke out late Thursday night and is expected to continue to burn for the next few days, a district press release said.

But northern Solano County’s air should be clean.

“We don’t expect any impact down there, unless there’s a massive change in the weather forecasts,” district spokesman Tom Hall said Monday.
