HOW TO CLEAN UP AFTER A BRUSH FIRE
The Los Angeles County Interim Health Officer advises all individuals to take precautions during clean-up following a fire. Ash, soot, dust, and other airborne particles may have been deposited inside and outside of homes and businesses. While ash from wildfires is relatively non-toxic and similar to ash that may be found in a home fireplace, it may be irritating to the skin, nose and throat. Exposure to ash in air might trigger asthmatic attacks in people who already have asthma. For more information, go to: http://publichealth.lacounty.gov/phcommon/public/media/mediapubHPdetail....
