JOINT BASE SAN ANTONIO-CAMP BULLIS, Texas –
Joint Base San Antonio’s Natural Resources Office, Fire & Emergency Services, and Air Force Wildland Fire Branch officials plan to conduct a prescribed burn of more than 1,700 acres of wildlands at JBSA-Camp Bullis from Jan. 18-26.
Residents near the northwest portion of JBSA-Camp Bullis, especially in the Dominion and Fair Oaks Ranch areas, may see or smell smoke while the burn progresses.
The burn is intended to reduce fuel loads, such as dead vegetation and thick brush, which will lessen the risk of future, potentially catastrophic, wildfires.
Joint Base San Antonio Fire Emergency Services personnel are coordinating with the Bureau of Land Management, the Fish and Wildlife Service, as well as fire departments in the surrounding areas to ensure the burn happens safely and remains fully contained throughout the scheduled period.
JBSA-Camp Bullis comprises more than 27,000 acres of ranges, training areas, and wildlands on San Antonio’s north side and is a crucial training location for service members from Joint Base San Antonio.
