Air quality officials on Friday approved $600,000 for contractors to design and install gas fire rings on public beaches, taking a new step in the fight over hundreds of wood-burning fire pits on Los Angeles and Orange County coast. The South Coast Air Quality Management District will pay two companies about $24,000 per unit to build more than two dozen gas or propane-burning fire pits. The vote came after Newport Beach officials agreed last week to eliminate more than half of the city's fire pits and replace some with cleaner, gas-fueled rings to reduce smoke drifting into shorefront homes.
