'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.
