The Ministry of Environment has issued an air quality warning for the region, warning residents with underlying medical conditions to avoid strenuous exercise and stay indoors.
The District of Squamish says air quality readings are currently indicating low concern, but fire suppression efforts may temporarily result in deteriorating air quality.
Residents are also asked to limit water use and to avoid beaches close to the water, where debris from the fire is visible.
The district says the environment ministry and various other supporting agencies are working on environmental protection and response.
The massive blaze broke out Thursday evening and was contained, but not extinguished, by Friday morning and an earlier air quality warning was lifted at that time.
