SMOKE HAZE UPDATE: NSW fires continue to blanket Stanthorpe in smoke
THE smoke haze lingering over Stanthorpe hasn't subsided yet, with the Bureau of Meteorology predicting the haze will hang around for the next couple of days.
"Air quality is looking at being reduced over the next few days.
"There is quite a lot of smoke being blown up from the fires that are burning just over the border in northern New South Wales.
"It does look like that smoke will be lingering for the next few days," a Bureau of Meteorology spokesman said.
First Officer of Sugarloaf Rural Fire Brigade and Treasurer of the Stanthorpe Combined Rural Group James Massey said, while this haze continued to linger, using fans instead of aircon was the wiser option.
"Aircon brings in air from outside and circulates it through your house," Mr Massey said.
"I would close all your windows facing the east and open the ones facing the west."
