(a) Entering any property or establishment whatsoever, commercial, industrial, or residential, believed to be violating said order (excepting single or double family homes or any dwelling unit within a multiple dwelling unit larger than a double family home) and, if a request does not produce compliance, causing compliance with said order;

(c) Disconnecting incinerator or other types of combustion facilities;

(d) Terminating all burning activities;

(e) Closing down or restricting the use of any business, commercial, retail, manufacturing, industrial or other establishment.

Where any person authorized to enforce such an order believes or suspects that same is being violated in a single or double family residence or within the dwelling portion of a large multiple dwelling unit, said residence or dwelling portion thereof may be entered only upon obtaining a search warrant from any judge having power to issue same.
