The New Mexico Environment Department and the state Health Department issued a smoke advisory for areas of New Mexico affected by smoke from the Tres Lagunas wildfire near Pecos.

Smoke levels are expected to be worst in Pecos Canyon, but communities south and east of the fire, including the town of Pecos, will also be affected by smoke especially during the evening and into the morning hours, according to a press release.

Over the weekend, smoke may also impact the cities of Las Vegas, Santa Fe and, potentially, Albuquerque.

The Environment Department and the Forest Service operate air quality monitoring equipment at multiple locations around the state. The monitors gather information about air quality conditions and help to keep the public informed.
