PHOENIX -- Environment regulators have issued a high pollution advisory and ban on wood-burning fires for Tuesday in metropolitan Phoenix.

It marks the fifth straight day that Maricopa County people have been told not to burn wood.

Open burning and use of wood burning fireplaces are generally prohibited.

People with respiratory problems are advised to avoid heavy or prolonged outdoor exertion.
