Ban Issued On Wood-Burning Fires During Air Quality Health Watch

PHOENIX (AP) — Environmental regulators have issued an air quality health watch and a ban on wood-burning fires for Tuesday in metropolitan Phoenix.

The health watch means the area’s particulate matter may approach the federal health standard for air quality.

The aim of the ban on wood-burning fires is to reduce pollutants in the air.

Open burning and use of wood burning fireplaces are generally prohibited.

People with respiratory problems are advised to avoid heavy or prolonged outdoor exertion.
