Fireplaces, wood stoves and other wood-burning structures must again remain cold Tuesday across the Bay Area after air quality officials issued a second Winter Spare the Air alert.

The alert bans burning wood, manufactured fire logs or other solid fuel both indoors and out for 24 hours starting at midnight.

The first Bay Area ban on wood burning was issued Monday, prompted by a cold, stagnant weather pattern allowing pollution to rise to an unhealthy level. The weather pattern is expected to continue until at least Wednesday.

Homes where wood stoves or fireplaces are the only sources of heat are exempt.
