Another 'Spare the Air' day for Monday

9th alert of year caused by wildfires throughout California

A Spare the Air Smog Alert has been issued for Monday due to hot weather, smoggy conditions and smoke from wildfires around the region.

Monday marks the ninth such alert so far this year issued by authorities at the Bay Area Air Quality Management District..

Air district executive officer Jack Broadbent said smoke from new wildfires throughout California, like the 1,200-acre Tassajara Fire in

Monterey County, have contributed to air pollution.

According to the air district, nearly 40% of smog and greenhouse gases in the Bay Area come from passenger vehicles, and the best way to reduce that pollution is by driving less.
