Air quality alert issued for North Pole; first of the season 

The first air quality alert since last winter was issued Thursday for North Pole, where the air quality has been classified as moderate. The alert is in place through 5 p.m. Friday.

Anyone sensitive to air pollution should avoid prolonged exertion outdoors, according to the Fairbanks North Star Borough air quality hotline (459-1234). An electronic notification was also sent Thursday afternoon.

Under the Stage 1 alert, residents are asked to stop wood and coal burning if they can.

Air quality manager Ron Lovell said the air has been stagnant and that the alert could be extended through the weekend, depending on weather conditions.
