'No burn' restrictions in force in Phoenix area

Posted: Updated:

PHOENIX (AP) -- "No burn" restrictions are in effect in the Phoenix metropolitan area due to high particulate levels in the air.
 
The restrictions include a prohibition on burning wood in fireplaces, outdoor stoves, chimineas and fire pits.
 
Air quality officials say they recognize that New Year's Eve is a big evening for recreational activities but they urge people to abide by the restrictions to protect public health.
