Prohibition on Wood-Burning Beach Fires

The Air District has issued a prohibition on wood-burning beach fires in our area due to the significant air quality impacts associated with the Soberanes fire.  The prohibition is effective immediately, until the Air District determines sufficient air quality improvement.  Propane fires are acceptable, but wood burning fires can no longer be allowed on our beaches, until further notice from the Air Board.

Richard Stedman, Air Pollution Control Officer, Monterey Bay Air Resources District (647-9411)
