Smoke from wildfires raging in eastern Washington prompted an air quality warning for the Seattle area.

The National Weather Service said Saturday afternoon that air quality in parts of the Puget Sound region was unhealthy for sensitive groups.

The state Department of Ecology’s air quality map showed those conditions in some measuring sites from Olympia to Mount Vernon as of 7 p.m. Saturday.
