Check before you burn in Sacramento County!

Real Estate Agent with Dunnigan Realtors

Last year around this time, I posted information regarding the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District's designated "Spare the Air" days where you can not burn wood in your fireplace. Their "No Burn" days are still in effect this year too.

You can actually sign up for email alerts from the Sacramento Metropolitan Air Quality Management District.

Check Before You Burn is in effect in Sacramento County and its cities: Citrus Heights, Elk Grove, Folsom, Galt, Isleton, Rancho Cordova, and Sacramento.

I heard on the radio yesterday that there are 70 enforcement officers out looking for illegal burning on No Burn days, and the fines are $1,000! YIKES!

Good idea!  Having family that has property in Amador County, any burn control is great! It is really easy to light that dry grass on fire (sounds like I know from whence I speak...).

And today, Thanksgiving, is a no burn day in Sacramento. The fine is only $50 for a first offense, so I imagine we'll still spot a lot of wood smoke coming out of chimneys as we drive about town. Some people just won't care and others will say, "Hey, it's Thanksgiving, and I'm not going to do without lighting a fire."

I think they should have stricter penalties for violating the "no burn" days.

There ought to be a burn day holiday on Christmas day so traditional folks can have a Yule log in the fireplace.

I think the burn days are a little oppressive at Christmas in wintry weather. What are the regulators thinking? It's as if they believe sensitive individuals are going to be outside for great lengths of time on Christmas day. It is unlikely, even in California's Great Valley, for anyone to be outside for very long without engaging in strenuous athletic behavior in which sensitive individuals probably won't participate.
