Special update – Extreme Weather & Fire Behavior anticipated

Hermits Peak Fire Wildfire
Announcements – 4/21/2022

The National Weather Service has issued a extreme weather warning. There is high confidence that a widespread extreme and catastrophic fire weather event will occur on Friday, April 22nd. Strong damaging winds will directly impact firefighting efforts on the Calf Canyon Fire and hinder response to any new fire starts that may occur due to the extreme weather conditions.
  We are urging the public to stay vigilant, to continue to watch for expected changes in evacuation status and be prepared to leave in a rapid manner. Due to high winds debris, powerlines and trees may block egress in many areas. Roads will likely become congested with traffic leaving the area. Visibility will be reduced due to smoke and dust over the roadways. Shelters continue to be available in Las Vegas, NM at the Old Memorial Middle School.   Updated information is available on the Sheriff San Miguel Facebook page, InciWeb, and the Santa Fe National Forest Facebook page.
