Hi welcome to healthcareMagic

Only one episode of inhaling the smoke from the Lead, will not have any effect on the body... for lead poisoning to develop there must be long exposure, for many years, it common in in the employees working in Dye industry, painting professionals, and printing industries... you need not worry for single exposure, nothing will happen.... Best way to avoid smoke , is by using wet cloth to tie around the nose, which will prevent any dust from entering through it...
