(cron) — Bay Area Air Quality Management issued a Spare the Air Alert on Monday.
High pressure is expected due to a combination of sub-zero nighttime temperatures, fog, and high air pollution levels that can result in unhealthy air quality. This ban prohibits burning wood, manufactured logs, or other solid fuels.
“Tomorrow, wood smoke is expected to create hazy skies and unhealthy air quality across the Bay Area,” said Sharon Landers, Interim Executive Director of the Aviation District. You can reduce the harmful health impacts on your family and neighbors during the holiday season.”
