  • Prescribed Burn in Indian Canyon near Grindstone Lake Schedule Sept 29, 2021

    The Smokey Bear Ranger District of the Lincoln National Forest will conduct a prescribed burn near Indian Canyon in the Grindstone area on September 29, 2021. Smoke will be visible in Ruidoso and Ruidoso Downs and will likely drift to the east.  

    Our firefighters are taking advantage of the heavy monsoonal moisture we were lucky to receive this year to burn approximately 55 acres of leftover piles from past forest thinning projects. These piles are also known as slash piles.
