Expect to see smoke in the Arroyo Grande area on Monday.

CAL FIRE SLO announced a prescribed burn on Twitter.

It will be conducted around the Hi Mountain Road area to burn invasive Yellow Star Thistle. Expect to see smoke.

In Creston, firefighters will work to reduce hazardous vegetation on Tuesday.

A burn will continue over several weeks along the east side of Highway 229 between Highway 58 and Creston.

Burning is expected to last into the New Year and will be completed each day to minimize potential overnight smoke impacts. If conditions are not suitable for good consumption and optimal smoke dispersal, the burns will be rescheduled, the press release stated.
