FAIRBANKS - The Fairbanks North Star Borough is asking residents to heat with oil instead of wood or coal - if they can.
Air pollution has been high since mid-December and is unhealthy for many people.
Residents have been asked to limit prolonged exertion. The young, the old and people with health problems should avoid exertion.
The National Weather Service said the temperature inversion that caused the pollution is on its way out.
