Breathing wildfire smoke is not healthy for anyone. Most healthy adults and children will recover quickly from smoke exposures and will not suffer long-term consequences. However, the elderly, children, pregnant women, smokers, and people with asthma, airway hyper-responsiveness, and cardiovascular disease may experience more severe short-term as well as chronic symptoms from smoke exposure.
