Check Before You Burn

No Burn days are called when weather conditions trap wood smoke near the ground. To protect public health, it is illegal to burn any solid fuel, including wood, pellets or manufactured firelogs when particulate matter pollution is forecast to be high. This applies to indoor or outdoor fireplaces, wood stoves, firepits and chimineas.
