RIVCO: No burn order in effect

Much of Riverside County will be under a “no-burn” order tomorrow, meaning indoor fireplace use and outdoor wood burning will be prohibited due to pollution concerns.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District issued the order for all
residences in the South Coast Air Basin, including the greater Los Angeles
area, Orange County and the Inland Empire.

The order excludes the Coachella Valley, residences above 3,000 feet in
elevation, and homes where there is no other source of heat.

Fine particles in wood smoke can penetrate deep into lungs, causing
problems for people with asthma or other respiratory disorders.
