July 5th Fire Update – Cibola National Forest

North Fire – Road repair work will begin this week on Forest Roads 549, 330, and 138. The roads were used heavily throughout the suppression and rehabilitation efforts and, in some areas, damaged by the fire effects.

Dog Head Fire – Engines continue to patrol the burned area. Fire activity has slowed significantly. Some smoke may be visible as interior islands of fuel continue to burn, but these are well within the fire’s perimeter. The fire is still 98% contained.

Puertecito Fire – This lightning-caused fire in the San Mateo Mountains was first reported yesterday afternoon. It is located on Hardy Ridge. A reconnaissance flight this morning revealed that approximately ½ acre had burned. The fire is in patrol status.
