One burner in Novato, CA ( see picture on far right)
pollutes all the air in his neighborhood. Photo courtesy of non burning neighbor, George Amaroli. He describes this day as a delightful fall sweater day. His home was comfortable with no heat. However due to the smoke he could not walk or work outside in his garden. Inside he ran air cleaners but could still smell smoke.
