Burning wood in a fireplace, chiminea or fire pit provides a warm cozy gathering place for families and friends during the holiday season. It also provides the perfect conditions for increased air pollution that can harm the ones you love. Maricopa County has higher levels of air pollution caused by wood-burning smoke, especially during the winter months. This puts the County at risk of not meeting federal health standards. If Maricopa County is unable to meet these standards, burdensome and costly federal regulations and stricter rules that could also mean higher fines.
