Smoke in air may be prescribed burn in Cuyamaca area

Plumes of smoke were expected to be visible over Julian and the surrounding areas today, Nov. 15, as state firefighters perform a brush-clearing operation.

A prescribed burn was scheduled to begin this morning off Highway 79 and Milk Ranch Road in the Cuyamaca area, according to Cal Fire Capt. Mike Mohler.

Prescribed burns typically last several hours as firefighters strategically set, then extinguish fires in order to efficiently get rid of overgrown brush that could fuel backcountry wildfires.
