Fire season is over, but a prescribed burn is on the way

Posted

The Carson is also planning its first prescribed burn of the year. Fire managers in the El Rito district, southwest of Taos County, plan to conduct the Alamosa prescribed burn sometime between Sept. 24 and Oct. 26.

The 2,833 acres are located about 7 miles north of El Rito and west of Vallecitos.

A community meeting about the burn project is planned for Sept. 22 from 10 to 11:30 a.m.

This burn is near the vicinity of two operations conducted in 2017 when the weather and other conditions were favorable to coaxing a natural wildfire into similar burns.
