Burnout Operation on Tiffany Fire Today (7/4)

An significant increase in smoke will occur today on the Tiffany Fire South of Socorro. Fire managers will be conducting an approximately 1,200 acre burnout operation in the Tiffany Basin area.  Aerial ignitions will occur via helicopter, bringing the fire edge to an area that firefighters can access safely and ensure containment in that area.  This fire was sparked by lightning June 26. It’s currently 40% contained and estimated at 6,495 acres. Overall containment of the Tiffany Fire is expected by Thursday (7/6) evening.
