Current Burn Status
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District is the public agency entrusted with regulating stationary sources of air pollution in the nine
counties that surround San Francisco Bay: Alameda, Contra Costa, Marin, Napa, San Francisco, San Mateo, Santa Clara, southwestern Solano, and southern Sonoma counties.
From November 1 through end of February, under the Air District's wood-burning regulation,
when a Winter Spare the Air Alert has been called, burning wood, firelogs, pellets, or any other solid fuels in your fireplace, woodstove, or other wood-burning device is illegal.
