Controlled Burns Planned In The Bay Area Today!

posted by Carolyn McArdle - 

Just a warning if you see fires burning in certain cities in the Bay Area today, they may be controlled burns. 

Fire crews are conducting controlled burns and training exercises in order to prep for the potential of wildfires popping up as fire season kicks into high gear.

The live fire fire training in Contra Costa County will take place near Bear Creek Road north of downtown Orinda beginning around 10 a.m. and wrapping up around 5 p.m. 

South in Santa Clara County, a controlled burn is also slated to take place Monday at Joseph D. Grant County Park.

Monday's exercises come after a series of suspicious grass fires ignited over the weekend in Santa Rosa.
