CEDAR RAPIDS (KWWL) - As an abandoned building in Cedar Rapids continues to burn itself out, the air quality has worsened.

The Linn County Public Health Department said people with asthma and other respiratory issues living or working downwind of the Sinclair property should stay indoors.

The fire at the Sinclair plant has been burning since Tuesday.

Winds have been from the south today but should turn more to the west - northwest Sunday evening.
