PUEBLO – Pueblo and Canon City’s air is good for your lungs.

The American Lung Association recently came out with its top 25 cleanest US cities for year-round particle pollution and the two southern Colorado cities ranked high on the list.

The association bunched the two cities as one group and they are tied for seventh with Duluth, Minnesota.

The Pueblo Health Department said a smaller population, the location, and open spaces helped with the ranking.

Colorado Springs tied for 13th in this year’s rankings.
