SANTA FE — Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the Santa Fe National Forest has announced that all planned prescribed burns have been postponed until further notice.
Potential smoke impacts to the public are always considered in prescribed fire and wildfire management.
The decision to postpone ignitions will:
- prevent any effects from smoke that might further endanger at-risk members of our communities; and
- reduce exposure for Forest Service employees, cooperators and other resources
