Army to burn Fort Ord lands again today Breeze puts a stop to munitions clearance Tuesday by Sunita Vijayan Salinas Californian October 7, 2009The U.S. Army may pick up today where it left off Tuesday morning after unexpected shifting winds halted controlled burns on former Fort Ord lands.
The Army is burning off brush that is helping to conceal old munitions from the fort's days as a military training base. Tuesday's fire lasted about an hour and a half before Army officials called it off at 11:15 a.m.
