If you notice smoke in northern San Luis Obispo County, fire officials say do not be alarmed.
Firefighters are burning 50 acres along W. Pozo Rd. about one mile southwest of Santa Margarita Lake.
CalFire SLO officials say the prescribed burn will help get rid of the invasive yellow starthistle and create a roadside firebreak.
