Marine Corps Air Station Miramar officials said Thursday they were planning to conduct training, including controlled burns, on the airfield Friday morning.
The training, which “will include a series of controlled burn exercises,” will take place between 6 and 10 a.m. Friday, according to Capt. Matthew Gregory, MCAS Miramar director of communications.
The controlled burns are part of the unit’s routine training program using a mobile aircraft firefighting trainer device, Gregory said.
“Some flames and dark smoke may be visible from nearby roadways,” he said. “No visibility restrictions are expected and these fires are in a controlled environment.”
