Wood-fired heating will be prohibited starting at midnight Monday, and lasting 24 hours into New Years Eve, because of high smog levels and stagnant air.

The "no burn day" order will be in effect in Los Angeles and Orange counties, and much of the Inland Empire, with a few exceptions, said officials at the South Coast Air Quality Management District.

Persons who have wood as their sole source of heat, or those living above the 3,000-foot elevation, are exempt. Also exempt are persons with low income.

Persons seeking information about the order can look at www.airalerts.org and entering their zip codes.
