Training burn to be held today and tomorrow in Atascadero
Smoke may be visible in Atascadero
– A live fire training burn for local firefighters is scheduled to take place between 8 a.m. and 10 a.m. at a property located on Del Rio Road near Highway 101 this week, and is being done in coordination with the San Luis County Arson Investigation Task Force. Smoke may be visible in Atascadero today and tomorrow.
Training will include the burning of several small portions of dry grass for less than one minute, which may produce a small amount of light smoke in the area. The objective of the training is to “provide arson investigators with a realistic environment where they will work in teams to determine exactly where and how the fire started based on the evidence left behind,” according to Atascadero Fire Chief Casey Bryson.
