Jemez Springs, NM — The lightning-caused San Antonio Fire on Valles Caldera National Preserve is now 75% contained and remains at 416 acres. There has been no significant growth, but interior hot spots are a concern. Crews will continue to mop up the hot spot within the mixed conifer and aspen.
After a fire, the first priority is emergency stabilization in order to prevent further damage to life, property or natural resources. The stabilization work begins immediately and may continue for up to a year. The longer-term rehabilitation effort to repair damage caused by the fire begins after the fire is out and continues for several years. Rehabilitation focuses on the lands unlikely to recover naturally from wildland fire damage.
Acres: 50, 296 Start Date: May 22, 2018
Cause: Human-caused Location: 10 miles NE of Reserve, NM (Gila NF)
Containment: 89% Fuels: Timber (litter, grass and understory)
Total Personnel: 109
General Information: Apache Creek Campground is open, all other closures regarding the Buzzard fire remain the same. The Buzzard Fire will be transitioning from the Type 3 Organization to a Type 4 Organization on Friday at 8:00 p.m.

After Aug. 1, until new recycling markets are found, this may be the only type of recyclable material permitted in Silver City recycling bins. It's corrugated cardboard, and not the same as that found in, for instance, cereal boxes.
By Mary Alice Murphy
Silver City Town Manager Alex Brown clarified that the town is until Aug. 1 accepting all recyclables. Assistant Town Manager says the town continues to be "as committed to recycling as in the past. We are aggressively seeking new markets."
However, after Aug. 1, unless and until some of the options the town is exploring work out, the town will accept only corrugated cardboard.
