SAN DIEGO - 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 Saturday 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.
