A prescribed burn took place yesterday in the Hollister area of San Benito County.    The burn was originally scheduled for today but was moved because of weather conditions.   The controlled burn was an effort to promote fire safety and reduce hazardous fire fuels by removing brush and down woody materials.  Officials say this type of exercise also provides hands-on training for fire personnel in fire suppression activities while working safely in a controlled environment.
