More air will be spared on Friday, as a series of “Winter Spare the Air” alerts issued by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District continues.
It’s official; Bay Area residents will not be allowed to light fires in their fireplaces on Christmas Day.
With an unpopular “Spare the Air” advisory in place today banning all burning in fireplaces, outdoor fire pits and more, many Bay Area residents are looking for ways around the rules. Here they are.
Another Winter Spare the Air alert has been issued for Saturday, the fourth regional wood-burning ban this week by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
As the weather starts to turn colder, the cozy feeling of sitting by a roaring fireplace could lead to a stiff fine if that fire is burning during a winter Spare the Air alert, air quality officials said.
The Winter Spare the Air season has ended, and there’s good news to report, as pollution levels from wood burning are down in the Bay Area.
Bay Area residents have been asked not to burn wood Sunday by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District.
Another Spare the Air Day has been announced by the Bay Area Air Quality Management District for Thursday, the 14th for this winter season.
Two more winter Spare the Air alerts were issued over this past holiday weekend, and once again hundreds of complaints were made about people burning wood fires in their homes.
Air quality officials are ready to crackdown after too many people ignored calls for voluntary, as well as mandatory restrictions on wood burning fires over the Christmas weekend.
