The Environmental Ministry warned the public about burning certain items in their Lag Ba'Omer bonfires Saturday evening.

Plastic items and painted wood should to be put in bonfires because they can release toxins into the air, the ministry said. In addition, the public was urged to be diligent in fully extinguishing bonfires after the close of the holiday and to refrain from lighting fires close to power lines.
