PASO ROBLES, Calif. - A controlled burn and fire training exercise was underway Sunday morning at the Paso Robles Airport.

Paso Robles Fire and Emergency Services alongside CAL FIRE personnel worked on the burn training between 10 a.m. and 1 p.m. Sunday.

Firefighters want to warn the community that smoke will be visible in the area during that time, but there is nothing to be worried about.

PR Fire said the cooler weather and increased relative humidity this month, has created an opportunity to finish their burning and live-fire training that was supposed to take place before the very busy fire season.

Two Paso Robles Fire engines, one squad and one Battalion Chief from Paso Robles participated in the exercise along with fire resources from the nearby Cal Fire station 98.
