DENVER (AP) - Smoke from wildfires in western Canada has triggered an air quality advisory in northeastern Colorado.

The Colorado Department of Public Health and Environment said Monday the smoke could cause problems for people with heart disease or breathing ailments.

The advisory covers all or parts of nine counties and is in effect until Tuesday morning.

Counties affected include Logan, Morgan, Phillips, Sedgwick, Washington and Yuma and parts of Adams, Arapahoe and Weld.

More than 200 wildfires are burning across western Canada, prompting the evacuation of thousands of residents. Heavy smoke is visible over Canada’s Pacific coast.
