Park Fined For Smoke

A national park is facing a heavy fine — up to $75,000 — for setting a controlled fire last June against an order from local air quality authorities.

An official from the San Joaquin Air Pollution Control District said that Sequoia-Kings Canyon National park authorities could not defy the burn ban, which is designed to protect the valley´s air from smoke and other pollutants.
