Gila National Forest: Update for 5/31/2019 – Cameron Creek Prescribed Fire, Silver City Ranger District

The Silver City Ranger District accomplished 75 acres of the planned 950 acres in the Cameron Creek Unit. They will continue with ignitions today.

Smoke will be visible and could impact north of the Fort Bayard area and the Village of Santa Clara, and drift into the drainages of the Mimbres Valley during the early morning and late evening hours. Smoke from the prescribed burn will be monitored to ensure that the New Mexico Environment Department’s Air Quality Bureau regulations are being met. A smoke monitor is set up at the Fort Bayard Medical Center, and live tracking can be found at for smoke monitor unit USFS1036
