On Sunday, some San Diego motorists may notice smoke from Marine Corps Air Station Miramar due to a controlled burn, according to officials.

The exercise is for military firefighters who will take part in routine controlled burns to clear brush on the base, officials said.

The training fires are scheduled to start about 9 a.m. Sunday and continue for roughly three hours, according to the base public affairs office.

The operation is not expected to cause any visibility problems for motorists on nearby Interstate 15, state Route 163 and surrounding city streets, officials said.
