Spare the Air, Spare Your Wallet

A warning to those blessed with lovely fireplaces and cozy outdoor firepits: the air police have descended, and they're taking no prisoners. If one of the 1.4 million fireplaces in the Bay Area is lit on one of the 20 Spare the Air days, violators will get a warning. Second fireside chat earns you a fine of up to $2,000. So crank those heaters, folks -- this is going to be a long winter. [SF Gate]
