Thompson Ridge Fire remains 90 percent contained

By The Staff

For the past week, there has been no new perimeter growth in the Thompson Ridge Fire, which remains at 90 percent contained and just under 24,000 acres.
The Friday morning update said, “most of the activity continues to be within the interior of the fire where unburned fuels continue to smolder and burn. Today crews will continue mop up and patrol all divisions of the fire. Rehab is nearing completion on the Valles Caldera National Preserve.”
The update said helicopter water drops will continue throughout the day to cool areas of the fire that threaten to become active. Low humidity and winds gusting to 45 miles an hour could contribute to increased fire activity within the interior which may create smoke plumes.
A crowd of 70 local residents attended the Burned Area Emergency Response (BAER) team public meeting at the Valles Caldera Science and Education Center in Jemez Springs last night. BAER will continue fire damage assessments and present updated findings late next week.
