BAKERSFIELD, Calif. (AP) — Air district officials have issued a ban on fireplace use in seven California counties.

The Air Quality Management District says burning wood, pellets and manufactured fire logs in residential fireplaces, stoves and fire pits is prohibited until midnight Monday.

The counties included are San Joaquin, Stanislaus, Madera, Fresno, Kings and Tulare. Portions of Kern County are also included.

Officials say the ban results from deteriorating air quality across the Central Valley.

Violations can result in fines.
