Minneapolis is now banning recreational fires during an air pollution public health advisory. The City Council strengthened its ordinance on the fires last week and officials said fires should be postponed any time the advisories about air pollution levels affecting public health are issued by the Minnesota Pollution Control Agency. Citizens can sign up to receive air quality alerts at http://mn.enviroflash.info. The ordinance change was recommended by the Citizens Environmental Advisory Commission and the Public Health Advisory Committee.
