LNF -Sacramento RD- Rx Burn

Fire officials on the Lincoln National Forest, Sacramento Ranger District will be conducting a prescribed burn near Sacramento today. Fire managers will monitor conditions closely to ensure they fall within the ranges identified in the burn plan.

The purpose of this project is to reduce hazardous fuels to increase health, vigor, and competitive ability of the native plant community.

Smoke from this burn may be visible from Sacramento, Weed, Piñon, Cloudcroft, and surrounding areas. In the event that smoke is encountered on travel ways, motorists are advised to reduce travel speeds and turn lights on. Smoke-sensitive individuals and people with respiratory or heart disease are encouraged to take precautionary measures. Information on air quality and protecting your health can be found online at the New Mexico DOH website at https://nmtracking.org/fire.
