“No burn day” restrictions are also in place from the Maricopa County Air Quality Department through midnight Wednesday. Residents and businesses must refrain from burning wood in fireplaces, woodstoves or outdoor fire pits. In addition, off-highway vehicles are prohibited from being used.

Particulate matter is created from combustion from cars and woodburning or when dust is stirred up by winds.
