Don’t Light Tonight advisory for Tuesday

By From page A2 | December 11, 2012

A Don’t Light Tonight advisory has been declared for Davis on Tuesday, and residents are asked to┬árefrain from burning wood.

Wood smoke has serious health impacts, especially for children, the elderly and those with lung ailments, an air district spokesman said. Certain meteorological conditions that typically lead to increased air pollution from wood smoke are forecast, triggering the advisory. For more information, visit ysaqmd.org/wood.

The city of Davis prohibits wood-burning when a Don’t Light Tonight advisory is in effect. The city will issue courtesy notices this burning season, which continues through February, before repeat violators are referred to the code enforcement division. Davis exempts EPA Phase 2 certified stoves and manufactured logs on no-burn days, if there is no visible smoke.
