Glenwood, NM – The Gila National Forest, Reserve Ranger District is lifting the Buzzard Fire Temporary Area Closure lifted effective 1:00 p.m. on August 21, 2018.

Please use caution in any area that has been recently burned. Rolling rocks are always a hazard in a burn area as monsoon rains may loosen materials that may be holding them. Footing can be tricking and this area has seen several fires. Trails may have hazardous trees whose root systems have been weakened by fire. Often, burnt branches and tops fall from these trees and could cause serious injury or death. Always be aware of your surroundings, watch your footing and look out for hazards.
