Study: Indiana Affected By Wildfire Smoke

Even though Indiana isn't prone to wildfires, your heath may be threatened by smoke from fires in other parts of the country. 

According to the Natural Resources Defense Council, Indiana was one of 32 states that had smoky skies for a week or more in 2011. 

Officials say exposure to wildfire smoke can cause serious health problems, including asthma and pneumonia, and can worsen chronic heart and lung disease.
