Firefighters are currently conducting a prescribed burn of up to 100 acres one mile south of Gallina off of N.M. 96 in the Coyote Ranger District.
Smoke may be visible from Gallina, Lindrith, Regina and Llaves.
Firefighters decided the moisture levels in the forest, the weather forecasts and current air quality were at the right levels to start burning. Depending on how the burn goes, it may take firefighters two days to complete the job.
