The City of Santa Fe Fire Department and the Forest Stewards Guild used snowy conditions to burn 8-acres of piles in the Aztec Springs area of Santa Fe on January 30th, 2019. Burning these piles was the next step to reduce fuels after the City's wildland fire crews thinned the area near communities on the east side of Santa Fe. This burn was carefully planned and implemented to take advantage of conditions that limited the impact of smoke to nearby residents.
