Peak Fire – Located northwest of Eagle Peak Lookout and is at approximately 10 acres.

Both fires are burning in the old HB Fire (1995) burn scar. The fires are moving through downed logs and are cleaning up snags and woody debris within this burn scar.

Reserve RD fire staff will be monitoring these fires as they clean up dead and down material on the forest floor.

Smoke-sensitive individuals and people with respiratory or heart disease are encouraged to take precautionary measures. Information on air quality and protecting your health can be found online at the New Mexico Department of Health website at https://nmtracking.org/fire.
