For the sixth straight year, Marin led Bay Area counties in the number of complaints filed during winter "Spare the Air" days when burning in fireplaces is prohibited, air quality officials reported Tuesday.
The Bay Area Air Quality Management District received 1,058 complaints from Marin residents about smoke during "Spare the Air" alerts — about one-fifth of the Bay Area total. Marin has led the category every year since the inception of the program.
"There are lot of inland valleys in Marin and smoke tends to accumulate in those areas," said Ralph Borrmann, air district spokesman. "There are also active groups in areas like West Marin who call in."
The district also is aware of difficulties facing areas, such as Woodacre, where access to natural gas is limited and many people rely on wood for heat. The rules include exemptions for those families and businesses who burn wood to stay warm, yet people may still call to report smoke from those buildings.
This is the sixth year the district has cracked down on people who burn wood on days when weather conditions make it likely smoke will hang in the air and cause particulate pollution, making it difficult for some people to breathe.
"People get frustrated they can't burn and we end up selling a lot of gas stoves," said Barry Hovis, an employee at Blaze Fireplaces in San Rafael.
He estimates gas stoves make up at least 80 percent of business, but that there still is a demand for wood stoves.
"Lots of people like wood," Hovis said. "That's what they grew up with."
A lack of rainfall in Marin and the Bay Area through early February, along with light winds and cool temperatures combined to create a high number of no-burn days this season, air officials noted. The district called 30 "Spare the Air" days during the Nov. 1 through Feb. 28 period, tying a record established in 2006-07 season.
