Fire managers on the Santa Fe National Forest treated three areas with prescribed fire Tuesday: Santa Fe Watershed prescribed burn, Thompson Ridge prescribed burn and the La Cueva Prescribed.
Fire managers have stopped ignitions on all three prescribed burn areas for the day.
The Santa Fe National Forest realizes that smoke from prescribed fire can be a nuisance to some people and a health concern for others, such as children, pregnant women, senior citizens and those suffering from allergies, asthma, chemical sensitivities or other heart or lung diseases.
To reduce exposure to smoke, stay indoors as much as possible with windows, doors and vents closed. Avoid or limit physical activities outdoors.
Smoke is being monitored and the Forest Service will comply with New Mexico air quality regulations.
For more information on how to minimize health impacts from smoke, contact the New Mexico Department of Health at 1-888-878-8992 or visit www.health.state.nm.us.
Santa Fe Watershed Burn, Española Ranger District - Ignitions stopped at around 5 p.m. Tuesday.
