Another Winter Spare the Air alert has been issued, this one for Monday. Wood burning is banned both indoors and outdoors for the full 24 hours.
It's the ninth consecutive Winter Spare the Air day, setting yet another record.
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District made the announcement on Sunday afternoon, saying the prolonged cold weather is trapping pollutants close the ground and causing unhealthy air.
For more information about the wood burning rules, or to check before you burn, visit www.sparetheair.org or call 1-877-4NO-BURN.
