On a related issue when we have the rare clean air day and people make fires in their fireplaces that smoke also threatens health. I am not against the occasional fire. I miss fires in my hearth. Last night when I went outside the smell of wood smoke was strong. The smoke was from neighbors burning wood in their fireplaces. Many kids and others have asthma and yes smoke from our hearths harms us. Just asking people to make fewer fires for health reasons.
