RENO, NV - Burn code in Washoe County is YELLOW Wednesday night into Thursday.

Residents of the Truckee Meadows are strongly encouraged to voluntarily reduce using fireplaces, wood stoves, and pellet stoves until conditions improve. Reducing burning now can help prevent air pollution from reaching unhealthy levels.

Active children and adults, and people with lung disease, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged or heavy outdoor exertion during the overnight and morning hours.
