Supporters of Beach Fire Pits Rally in Huntington Beach

HUNTINGTON BEACH, Calif. (KTLA) — Beach fire rings, a beloved pastime, could soon disappear in Orange County.

That’s becasue the Air Quality Management District and beachfront residents want them removed, saying the smoke severely pollutes the air.

But fans of the beloved fire rings are vowing not to give up, and they held a bonfire rally Sunday night in Huntington Beach.

They maintain that the fire pits are a tradition for beachgoers and positive for the economy.

The AQMD is expected to vote on the matter on June 7th.
