MCAS Miramar to conduct controlled burn Friday

Posted: Updated:

SAN DIEGO (CNS) - Military firefighters plan to set and monitor several brush-clearing controlled burns at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar Friday evening.

The routine prescribed fires, part of the base's annual efforts to reduce wildfire risks, will take place for about three hours starting at 6 p.m., according to USMC public-affairs officials.

While people in surrounding communities may see some flames and smoke, no roadway visibility restrictions or air-quality problems were anticipated.
