OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) -- The state Department of Environmental Quality is issuing an air quality advisory in 19 counties because of recent wildfires.

Environmental program specialist Curt Goeller says low winds leave the smoke, dust and ash hanging in the wind to create air quality problems. Goeller says he's hoping stronger winds expected Thursday will clear the air.

The 19 counties are Atoka, Caddo, Cleveland, Coal, Comanche, Garvin, Grady, Latimer, McClain, McIntosh, Murray, Muskogee, Okfuskee, Okmulgee, Pittsburg, Pontotoc, Pottawatomie, Seminole and Wagoner.
