No Burn Day Extended Due To High Air Pollution In Santa Clarita

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (South Coast AQMD) has extended a residential no burn day alert through Friday, affecting all those living in the South Coast Air Basin, which includes Santa Clarita due to high air pollution.

South Coast AQMD reminds residents in these areas that burning wood in their fireplaces or any indoor or outdoor wood-burning device is prohibited through Friday during the

mandatory wood-burning ban, according to officials. 

The no burn rule prohibits burning wood as well as manufactured fire logs, such as those made from wax or paper, according to officials.

“Do your part to help keep our air clean by not burning wood during the mandatory wood burning ban,” officials said. 

No burn day alerts are mandatory in order to protect public health when levels of fine particulate air pollution in the region are forecast to be high, and smoke from wood burning can cause health problems, according to officials.  

Particles in wood smoke — also known as fine particulate matter or PM2.5 — can get deep into the lungs and cause respiratory problems including asthma attacks, increases in emergency room visits and hospitalizations, according to officials. 

Residents can help reduce the harmful health effects of wood smoke by signing up to receive email alerts to learn when a mandatory no burn day alert is issued.

  1. Total B.S. on this one. There is nothing wrong with our air quality. It’s because of the fire danger due to the winds.

  2. And, contribution to life ending, hysterical Global Warming/Climate Change, hidden in the deceitful Liberal messages!
