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.
