Check Before You Burn

Residents and businesses are restricted or prohibited from using indoor or outdoor fireplaces, wood stoves, firepits and chimineas that burn wood, pellets, manufactured logs or any other solid fuel, when fine particle pollution is forecast to be elevated. It is your responsibility to Check Before You Burn. First time violations will result in a $50 fine or an option to complete and pass a wood smoke awareness course. Fines for subsequent violations are higher.

Call 1-877-NOBURN-5 (1-877-662-8765) to get the daily burn status.

To report a complaint or suspected violation from November through February,
call the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District at 1-800-880-9025.
