Sacramento Ranger District Prescribed Fire: Fire officials on the Sacramento Ranger District in Cloudcroft, NM, plan to prescribed burn in the Walker and Burnt Canyon areas near Mayhill, NM. The project will begin in November and carry into February. Exact ignition dates are dependent on weather and fuel moisture conditions. Fire managers will monitor conditions closely to ensure they fall within acceptable ranges. Optimal conditions will result in good ventilation and smoke dispersal, as well as help achieve the desired effects on the ground during and after the burn.
