First day of the Jaroso Fire, NM on June 10, 2013

On this day, a third active wildfire began near Santa Fe. This fire quickly grew in the first hours and because it is burning in a remote area of the Pecos Wilderness, the fire response is coming chiefly from aerial assaults. We are suffering from high temperatures, low humidity, and an extended drought resulting in a series of fires in Northern New Mexico.
