The Forest Service has announced "Ft Apache Agency has several large Prescribed fires in progress at this time resulting is smoke coming into the Gila area."

There are reports that the smoke is heavy and nauseatingly thick in the Mimbres Valley stretching to Hanover and some into Arenas Valley.

Thanks for letting us know. I wondered what that brown cloud was, and had trouble breathing and had a bad headache yesterday. Do you know how long the fires will go for?

The press releases from Arizona never say how long a burn is projected to last but it seems that a few more are coming up at some point this fall. According to the NM Forestry the smoke rides the jet stream.
