Yakima fair opening under cloud of wildfire smoke

YAKIMA -- The Central Washington State Fair is opening Friday under a cloud of smoke from wildfires in Kittitas and Yakima counties.
Health officials are advising vulnerable people to stay indoors because of the poor air quality.
One person with asthma, Tyler McTee, told KAPP that the smoke burns his throat and hurts his lungs.
Another fair-goer, Linda Onustock, said she'll spend most of her time at the fair inside the Yakima SunDome.
