Massive California wildfires take a toll on air quality

Clip: 08/09/2018 | 7m 39s

At its peak, the fire displaced almost 20,000 people, and there are more than a dozen more blazes burning across California. Special correspondent Cat Wise joins William Brangham from Ukiah to discuss how the fires are affecting air quality.
