Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Military firefighters will set and monitor several brush-clearing controlled burns Sunday at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

The routine prescribed fires, part of annual efforts to reduce wildfire risks, will begin about 9 a.m. and continue into the early afternoon, according to the base's public-affairs office.

While people in surrounding communities may see some flames and smoke, no roadway visibility restrictions or air-quality problems are expected, Marine Corps officials said.
