(Salt Lake City-AP) -- The air in Salt Lake and Utah Counties is starting to clear up.

The Department of Environmental Quality is not issuing a health advisory today.

Instead, they're issuing a smoke advisory.

The department says today's air quality is moderate, but they will be monitoring the quality throughout the day and will issue any warnings accordingly.

The smoke advisory warns people to limit their exposure to smoke.

The fire burning in the Cascade Springs area of the Uinta National Forest has filled the Salt Lake valley with smoke this week, prompting health warnings in Salt Lake and Utah Counties.
