FRom the FHL Facebook page today.

A wild land fire that began around 4 p.m. is burning in Fort Hunter Liggett training areas south of Nacimiento-Fergusson Road and west of Jolon Road. More than 30 firefighters and a dozen vehicles from our fire department, CalFire and the U.S. Forest Service have the 2,500 acre fire about 15-20 percent contained. Nacimiento-Fergusson is open as of 6:30 p.m. but be prepared for possible delays. Updates as information changes.

I think it's on the west end of the air strip, somewhere near the bridge in 16A

According to the hunt/fish guy it was a planned/controlled burn? Didn't sound right to me but he said it wouldn't affect open TA's this weekend. From the fb post it didn't sound planned unless no one told that guy, after all it is the army...

2500 acres is a pretty big fire. It might have been a planned fire

Oops, I missed the 2500 acre mention, yeah that is a pretty big fire. I'm still wondering why it's not on the hotlist, FHL fires have been on there in the past. Hmmm
