Prescribed burn happening near Hollister Friday

On Friday, Cal Fire held a prescribed burn southwest of Hollister. The plan was for firefighters to burn 23 acres of dried brush. “Prescribed burns are conducted to reduce over grown or dead vegetation, this helps to reduce fire hazard and build strategic fuel breaks,” noted Cal Fire. People in San Benito County may see the smoke for a few days but Cal Fire says that is normal.
