Knoxville (WVLT) - East Tennessee is under an Air Quality Alert today.
The Environmental Protection Agency says Friday's air quality index is at level orange.
That means the air could be unhealthy for sensitive groups, such as those with heart or lung disease, older adults, and children.
If you are in one of these groups, health experts say you should avoid prolonged time outdoors and you should also not exert yourself.
