Silver City Ranger District fire personnel are planning to conduct the Redstone Prescribed Fire beginning mid-October and continuing through March 31, 2017 as weather and conditions allow. Often these conditions depend on winter weather which can be difficult to predict. This accounts for the multiple-month time frame. The 413 acre project is located approximately 12 miles north of Silver City off New Mexico State Highway 15, on Gila National Forest lands around the Meadow Creek area. The goals of the prescribed fire include reducing fuels left from a recent Collaborative Forest Restoration project, reintroducing fire into the ecosystem, and improving wildlife habitat.

Fire Managers conform to a burn plan that outlines the “prescription,” or environmental conditions needed, such as temperature, wind, fuel moisture, air ventilation, and humidity that need to be met to successfully achieve the goals of the fire project. When conditions permit, implementation of the project will depend on availability of personnel and equipment, as well as smoke management approval from the New Mexico Environment Department Air Quality Bureau.

Smoke will be noticeable during days of ignitions and may impact surrounding areas, particularly in the late evening and early morning hours. For more information, please contact Jesse Searles at 575-388-8412 or Randy Gomez at 575-388-8461.
