Military firefighters conduct controlled burns Tuesday

Posted: Updated:

CAMP PENDLETON (CNS) - People who live, work and commute in the North County may see plumes of smoke rising from Camp Pendleton Tuesday as military firefighters carry out a brush-clearing controlled burn.

The prescribed fire in the Juliet Training Area in the southeast reaches of the Marine Corps station will take place throughout daylight hours, according to the base's public-affairs office.

The operation is intended to reduce wildfire fuels in training areas near the Naval Weapons Station and military-housing areas.
