[Special Update] Wildfire!!!!
Conditions have been bone dry and the fire danger has been extreme. Today, on June 8th, all the elements necessary came together to spark this small (for now) fire on the north end of town. As you can see from the picture, it is burning on the steep slopes of Animas City Mountain within the ponderosa, pinyon/juniper, oak scrub. I am really hoping it is brought under control soon, because if it's not, things can get really ugly around here.
