Military firefighters plan prescribed burns today, Sunday

Saturday, May 25—Military firefighters will set, monitor and extinguish several brush-clearing controlled burns this weekend at Marine Corps Air Station Miramar.

The routine prescribed fires, part of annual vegetation-management efforts intended to reduce wildfire risks, will take place today and Sunday, 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.

    Ugh, first CalFire lets one get away and now the military is going to do a "controlled burn"! Seems like everytime they do this it gets away, but they were not even in the area. SMH
