Air Quality Management Halts Fireplace Usage
Posted by Jennifer Alcaraz on Nov 26, 2012 - 10:06:09 PM

WEST HOLLYWOOD—The Air Quality Management System or AQMD, has issued a new air pollution policy, that was implemented in November 2011. It first took effect at midnight on Saturday, November 24 and ran until Sunday, November 25 at midnight. The purpose was to temporarily inactivate fireplaces, including artificial logs and wood pellets as well.


The order originated from the National Weather Service (NWS) that mentioned there would be a dense overnight fog along with tepid temperatures during the day.


The NWS explained that there is a hot layer of dry air covering the marine layer, the air being 11 degrees warmer is what acts like a cap. In addition, AQMD published a smog forecast due to air pollution that was going to be dragged into the Santa Monica Bay by weak Santa Ana winds of about 10 to 20 miles per hour.

It was dangerous especially for people in Metropolitan Los Angeles and part of the San Fernando and Santa Clarita Valley on Sunday. These type of warnings are usual in Northern California, but not in Southern California.

People who violate the policy will be fined a penalty from $50 upward to $500 for repeat offenders.


The areas not allowed to burn wood in fireplaces included  West Hollywood, Sherman Oaks, Echo Park, Silver Lake, Highland Park, Mt. Washington, North Hollywood, Studio City, Los Feliz, Valley Village, Toluca Lake and Eagle Rock, as well as other regions. 


People concerned about their households being part of the wood-burning fireplace ban were able to submit their zip code to the AQMD website to learn if they were under the restriction.
