Hot Weather, But No Swimming In New Bern YMCA Pool Due To Smoke

As the Croatan fire continues to burn, smoky conditions aren't letting up for New Bern.

People at Lawson Creek Park were still outside playing lacrosse and soccer, even though they told us it was difficult to breathe.

But the YMCA closed their outdoor pool Tuesday morning and have yet to reopen, taking extra precautions according to Susan Decker, assistant aquatics director. "Our staff are a lot of teenagers and we didn't want them to come out here and we run a day camp out here our campers are not allowed outside during this time."

Decker says until breathing conditions improve, the pool will remain closed.
