The Carson Nation Forest is planning to conduct a prescribed burn between October 19 and November 20, 2020, as weather permits. The prescribed burn will be conducted off Highway 64 between Mile Marker 271 and 272. The ignition units are on both sides of Forest Road 5 and north of Forrest Road 706.
The intent of the project is to burn residual fuels to create a defensible space near the communities of House Party and Angel fire, restore Forest Hill, and improve wildlife habitat. If weather conditions are favorable, approximately 1200 acres would be eligible for treatment. Please visit the Village of Angel Fire website for the official news release and map.
