April 2, 2019

Santa Fe National Forest officials have postponed a prescribed burn Tuesday near Nichols Reservoir and say it is on hold until at least Friday, depending on weather conditions and fuel moisture levels.

Up to 500 acres, including 50 acres of piles, will be ignited, in the lower Santa Fe municipal watershed. Smoke could be visible in Santa Fe, Tesuque, Eldorado and the I-25 corridor.
