What kind of beach party is it without a bonfire? Newport Beach’s proposed ban on firepits is spreading like wildfire, as air quality officials consider nixing them throughout Orange and L.A. county beaches. Prosecutors have cleared an Anaheim police officer in last summer’s shooting death of Manuel Diaz.
