The Camp Fire in Northern California is not only wreaking havoc and disaster in the affected areas, but it is also having a serious and dangerous effect on air quality in cities like San Francisco.


The air quality in San Francisco is so poor that on Friday, breathing the air was akin to smoking 10 cigarettes in one day.

Wildfire smoke is especially dangerous because of what the fire burns.

Wildfires often burn homes, as is the case in the current tragedy in California. Because they burn homes, vast amounts of chemicals from cleaning materials, insulations, etc. are part of the smoke's content.

According to AirNow, San Francisco will not be seeing relief from the toxic air anytime soon.

Many people agree that the air quality is abysmal.




Recently Uber drivers in the city have begun selling N95 respirator masks to their riders.

People are shocked that the air quality has brought people to such extremes.



Some are categorizing the endeavor as disaster capitalism and, considering the circumstances, find it distasteful.



But don't lose faith in humanity quite yet; some compassionate drivers have also been seen giving away the masks for free.
