San Luis Obispo, CA – The California Army National Guard has tentatively scheduled a Fire Hazard Abatement burn at Camp Roberts with a tentative burn window set between May 18 and May 29. The goal of this one-day burn is to reduce the risk of a wildland fire during troop training activities and will be comprised of approximately 8,000 acres of grassland. The burn is scheduled to begin at 9:00 a.m. and conclude at 7:00 p.m. on a permissive burn day. The San Luis Obispo County Air Pollution Control District staff have reviewed the Camp Roberts Smoke Management Plan and provided conditions to ensure air quality is preserved in San Luis Obispo County. The burn will be conducted when the meteorological conditions are highly favorable to direct smoke away from potential population centers.
