It's not illegal, but Bay Area residents are still being asked to refrain from burning wood Thursday.
Instead, they declared a recommended no-burn day. Residents are being encouraged not to burn wood or other fuels in their fireplaces and outdoor pits.
"Clear and dry weather is expected to continue throughout the week," said Jack Broadbent, executive officer of the air quality district. "We are asking the public to voluntarily refrain from burning on Thursday to help reduce pollution levels during this mid-winter dry period."
Mandatory Spare The Air alerts were in effect on Tuesday and Wednesday.
