Not to be a Grinch, but there's a no-burn restriction in place that will prevent you from legally burning a Yule log on Christmas Eve and Christmas day.
Maricopa County issued the restriction Friday due to deteriorating air quality. The Arizona Department of Air Quality issued a high pollution advisory for Saturday and Sunday for fine particulates. The ban is meant to reduce particulate pollution caused by wood-burning fireplaces, fire pits and open outdoor burning. ADEQ recommends children and adults with respiratory problems avoid outdoor activity this weekend. For more information, visit www.CleanAirMakeMore.com.
