NM Wildfires

WE are having a particularly devastating drought in New Mexico and there is a huge 28,000 acre wildfire in Mayhill.

The Mayhill Ranger Station to the east of Mayhill, the station is to the right and the burn area is to the left
Hilda's 3 houses were the only homes lost, but the fire had to jump the road to get to them . Note the blackened butane tank to the left of the picture.
This is the campground that is immediately to the west of Mayhill.
This picture shows the burned and unburned area. Looks like mostly brush and dry, dry grass that burned.

Remember that only you can prevent forest fires!
