A California assemblyman is inviting fire ring supporters to Huntington Beach on Sunday for another round of hot dogs.
Assemblyman Travis Allen (R-Huntington Beach) is hosting a rally from 4 to 7 p.m. at the pits at 21579 Pacific Coast Hwy. near Zack's.
It will be the second time Allen has hosted an event to support fire rings at Huntington Beach. Hundreds of supporters, including Assemblyman Allan Mansoor (R-Costa Mesa), showed up during the April 28 rally.
The event comes days before the South Coast Air Quality Management District's July 12 hearing on proposed changes to Rule 444 that would create buffer zones between the rings and homes and allow greater local control.
