Mexico cancels school in capital due to poor air quality – AOL News

MEXICO CITY (AP) — Mexico’s education ministry canceled schools in the capital and surrounding areas for Thursday due to a siege of air pollution.Weather conditions at the end of Mexico’s dry season combined with dozens of brushfires burning in and around the city have produced a blanket of smoky haze.The federal Environment Department said Wednesday that 3,800 firefighters are combatting an average of about 100 fires a day in brush, scrub, agricultural and forest land throughout the country. Fire risk is highest in the spring for much of Mexico because the summer rainy season has not yet started.
