Tiffany Fire Update – 7/5 – 9am

The Tiffany Fire is approximately 9,200 acres and 79% contained.  The burnout operation in Tiffany Basin was successful and crews will work today to secure the fire perimeter in that area.  Progress was also made near Fort Craig, which is expected to reopen Saturday (7/8).  Helicopters continue to support ground resources with critical water drops.  Weather conditions continue to be hot and dry, with temperatures reaching 100 and humidity in the low teens.  Winds will be from the northeast/east and may become gusty and erratic near thunderstorms.  Full containment is expected tomorrow evening (7/6).

For information, please call the Tiffany Fire Information Line at (575) 322-2503 from 8:00 A.M. to 8:00 P.M., or email
