The Maricopa County Air Quality Department is enforcing mandatory No Burn Day restrictions Saturday and Sunday due to a high pollution advisory. The air quality forecast suggests stagnant air, low wind and winter inversions will trap fine particulate pollution close to the ground, according to a news release.

No Burn Day regulations state residents and businesses must refrain from burning wood in fireplaces, wood stoves or outdoor fire pits during the restriction period. This includes individuals and businesses that have burn permits for open burning. Grilling activities and gas powered fireplace activity is allowed on a No Burn Day.
