San Juan Prescribed Burn 100 Percent Complete

SFNF News:

Fire managers have completed ignitions for the week on the 7,300 acre San Juan prescribed burn, Jemez Ranger District.

All 7,300 acres were successfully treated over a three day period. The prescribed burn was completed two days early to avoid additional smoke impacts.

There will be no burning on the Santa Fe National Forest this weekend.

Next week, if conditions are favorable, fire managers will continue prescribed burning on the Chaparral prescribed burn, Cuba Ranger District.

The Chaparral prescribed burn is a smaller burn compared to the San Jun Prescribed Burn, therefore less smoke will be emitted next week.
