Prescribed burn under control

-A A +A
By The Staff

Fire managers have been treating a 6,500 acre La Sotella Prescribed Burn area eight miles south of Abiquiu with hand and aerial ignitions.

The burn is within prescription and is under control.

Currently the burn is releasing a lot of smoke, which is drifting east towards the small communities north of Espanola including El Duende, Chamita, San Juan and Hernandez.  Smoke also is very visible from I-25 and US 285.

Thursday’s burning activities involve a greater acreage and more fuel burning, because a helicopter with an aerial ignition device dropped polystyrene balls (ping-pong balls) within the interior of the burn. Some 3,000 acres were treated Thursday, for a total of 3,450 treated acres since Wednesday.
