BRIEF: Marin told not to burn Wednesday by air district

The alert triggers a ban on burning wood, manufactured fire logs or any other solid fuel.

The large high pressure system that dominated the weather last week is finally weakening and moving slowly east. However, particulate levels today have increased and are threatening to reach unhealthy levels tomorrow, according to air officials.

The daily burn status can be found on the district websites at or, via the toll-free hotline 1-877-4-NO-BURN, by signing up for AirAlerts at or phone alerts at 1-800-430-1515, or via the Spare the Air iPhone and Android apps.
