An air quality alert is in effect for the entire city until 11 p.m. as a brush fire continues to burn in southern New Jersey.
Many New Yorkers reported smelling the smoke Monday morning.
More than 1,500 acres have been burned in Wharton State Forest, which is about 90 miles away.
The fire is reportedly only about 30 percent contained.
During an air quality alert, New Yorkers should consider limiting strenuous outdoor activity.
The State Health Department says those with sensitive respiratory systems should also be cautious.
There are no reports of injuries as a result of the fire.
