Don’t be alarmed by the plumes of billowing smoke, that will periodically be visible in the area of Marine Corps Air Station Miramar over the weekend.
It’s part of a prescribed burn exercise in which military firefighters will carry out controlled burns in the eastern reaches of the base.
The personnel will set, monitor and extinguish the fires Saturday and Sunday as part of routine training and brush management operations at the northern San Diego USMC installation.
Though people in surrounding communities may see flames and smoke, no visibility restrictions are expected, according to MCAS Miramar officials.
