Site: Forest Road 10 and NM Freeway 4 somewhere around 7 miles east of Jemez Springs
Evacuations: Sandoval County is evacuating the communities of Sierra Los Pinos and Los Griegos thanks to exceptionally windy dry conditions and the Cerro Pelado Fire’s likely for progress.
Resources: Firefighters from the Jemez Ranger District and Sandoval County as properly as community volunteer fireplace departments are on scene.
Weather: A specifically unsafe fireplace weather conditions celebration is ongoing throughout the area as unusually significant winds hit challenging forward of a strong cold entrance. Conditions are ripe for fast large hearth advancement with very long-variety spotting. Cold air moving in guiding the entrance will result in below-standard temperatures this weekend, but windy problems will carry on.
Fuels: The Cerro Pelado Fire is burning in ponderosa pine and mixed conifer. Ailments on the forest are particularly dry with significant fire threat and ample readily available fuels.
Security: The wellness and basic safety of firefighters and the community are usually the first precedence.
Smoke: Smoke from the Cerro Pelado Fire is most likely to be visible from NM Highway 4, US Route 550, Canon, Jemez Pueblo, Jemez Springs, Sierra Los Pinos, La Cueva and San Diego Canyon. Smoke-delicate people today and people with respiratory troubles or heart disorder are inspired to take precautionary actions.
