Stagnant air conditions in the region prompted the agency to issue the ban to reduce the amount of wood-smoke pollution.
The “Stage 1” ban, the least restrictive, prohibits burning in fireplaces or uncertified wood stoves, along with any outdoor burning. Violations are enforced by complaint and subject to a $1,000 penalty.
Natural gas, propane, pellet and environmentally certified wood stoves or inserts can be used during a Stage 1 burn ban.
