Ox Spring Fire Contained

Mountainair, NM, May 3, 2020 – The Ox Spring Fire, which was reported just after noon today, is now 100% contained.  Forest Service crews along with mutual aid from Torreon and Mountainair Fire Departments, were able to line the fire to hold its growth to under an acre.  Two helicopters also aided in stopping the fires progress.  The Mountainair Ranger District would like to thank Torrance County for its quick response and support during this incident as they provided firefighters, brush trucks and water tenders.  Firefighters will remain at Ox Canyon throughout the night and continue mop-up tomorrow.  The cause of this fire is unknown at this time but a fire investigator was on site to determine the cause.
