Wildfires pose a threat for asbestos exposure as they move into cities and residential neighborhoods with structures built before 1980, when asbestos was commonly used in construction. When these structures catch fire, asbestos products become damaged and release carcinogenic fibers that become airborne and transportable in smoke. This leads to asbestos exposure among first responders, cleanup crews and nearby residents.
