TAOS, NM – August 27, 2022 – The Santa Fe and Carson national forests, along with the Interagency Management Team assigned to the Calf Canyon Fire, are working to find solutions to continually reopen areas of the forests as suppression repair work is completed and weather patterns change over the burn area. A third reduction just took place on the Carson National Forest last week with another one anticipated possibly for this week.
Highlights: Repairs are nearing completion on the southern end of the fire area. Continued cooperation from the public has helped the firefighters complete their repair work with maximum efficiency and safety. Incoming favorable weather into next week is expected to provide better conditions to increase the pace of repair activities.
