Air district asks Valley to avoid burning wood on Thanksgiving

The Fresno BeeNovember 27, 2013 

Deteriorating air quality in several counties in the Valley led to a wood-burning curtailment and a warning for the rest of the air basin, the San Joaquin Valley Air Pollution Control District said.

Thanksgiving will be a no-burn day in San Joaquin and Stanislaus counties. The control district said people in the district's six other counties should consider the health effects of lighting fires before doing so.
