The Arizona Department of Environmental Quality has issued a health watch for fine particulate matter pollution (PM-2.5) for Monday. As a result, the Maricopa County Air Quality Department has issued “no burn day” restrictions, which includes a ban on wood burning activity including fireplaces, fire pits or open outdoor burning. This is the fourth consecutive “no burn day.”
Residents must refrain from burning wood, trash or other materials in their fireplace, woodstove or outdoor fire pit during this 24-hour period. This restriction includes those who have burn permits for open burning.
