  • The rule prohibits burning wood as well as manufactured logs, such as logs made of wax or paper.
  • The order does not apply to mountain communities above 3,000 feet, the Coachella Valley or the high desert.
  • The ban on residential wood burning will be in effect until at least Monday, 11:59 p.m. ET.

The South Coast Air Quality Management District (SCAQMD) extended until Monday a mandated ban on indoor and outdoor wood burning across much of Southern California due to forecasts of higher air pollution in the area.

The residential wood burning ban will be in effect until at least 11:59 p.m. Monday, affecting all of those in the South Coast Air Basin, including Riverside, San Bernardino and all non-desert portions of Los Angeles and Orange counties Huh.

The order does not apply to mountain communities above 3,000 feet, the Coachella Valley or the high desert. Households that rely on wood as their sole source of heat, low-income homes, and homes without natural gas service are also exempt from the requirement.

The rule prohibits burning wood as well as manufactured logs, such as logs made of wax or paper. The SCAQMD said gas and non-wood-burning fireplaces are not prohibited.

The fine particles in wood smoke, also known as particulate matter or PM2.5, can lodge deep in the lungs and cause respiratory problems such as asthma.
