Controlled Burn in Castaic
Today from 11am-3pm the Los Angeles County Fire Department will be conducting testing of a Helicopter Safety Device at Pitchess Detention Center in Castaic.
This test burn will be very controlled involving burning of less than one acre of brush.
Residents in the area may experience some temporary noise pollution from water dropping helicopters, fire department engines and work crews during the training burns. There may also be some temporary inconvenience from smoke odors, particularly to smoke-sensitive persons.
