  • Prescribed burn NE of Jemez Springs set for this week

    San Juan Prescribed Burn in the Jemez Ranger District is being planned to begin Wednesday, Oct. 17, if conditions are favorable, fire managers will ignite the 7,300 acre San Juan prescribed burn, located 3-5 miles northeast of Jemez Springs. 

    Approximately 2,500 acres are expected to be treated each day.  Prescribed burning is the managed application of fire to wildland fuels (woody material) under specified conditions, within predetermined boundaries in an effort to reduce hazardous fuels, provide community protection, and restore forest health.

    · The burn area is located 3-5 miles northeast of the Jemez Springs and 4-8 miles northwest of the community of Ponderosa.

    · During the three to five day burning period, 7,300 acres of hazardous fuels will be treated with hand and aerial ignitions. Approximately 2,500 acres are expected to be treated each day.

    · Larger blocks will be treated over a five day period which will increase daily smoke volume, but will decrease the number of days smoke is in the air.

    · Ignitions will not exceed more than five days. After ignitions are complete residual smoke will be visible for a few days.

  • Official: Skydiver breaks speed of sound

    ROSWELL, N.M. (AP) — Officials say that Felix Baumgartner has become the first skydiver to break the speed of sound.

    At a news conference, Brian Utley of the International Federation of Sports Aviation, says Baumgartner reached a maximum speed of 833.9 mph during his jump Sunday over the New Mexico desert.

    Baumgartner came down safely in the eastern New Mexico desert about nine minutes after jumping from his capsule 128,097 feet, or roughly 24 miles, above Earth. He lifted his arms in victory, sending off loud cheers from jubilant onlookers and friends.
