Alamosa Prescribed Fire is Postponed

Taos, NM (April 5, 2018) - For Immediate Release. The Alamosa prescribed fire that was planned on the El Rito Ranger District of the Carson National Forest has been postponed. Fire managers were continually evaluating a number of conditions and now see indications that it is too dry to safely conduct this prescribed fire.  The forest will look for an opportunity to conduct this burn after the monsoonal rain arrives.

A community meeting about the Alamosa prescribed burn is planned for Friday, April 6 at 6:00 p.m. at the community center/library in Vallecitos.

For additional information, contact the El Rito Ranger District at 575-581-4554.
