Pacheco Fire: Day 5

This one is in New Mexico.

The information in this post is from InciWeb.

Since it began June 18, 2011, it has grown to 5,500 acres and is at 10% containment, with 625 amazing men and women working it.  So far, no towns have been evacuated; however, “New Mexico Route 475, also known as Hyde Park Road, and Artist Road are closed at mile post 9, at the [Santa Fe National] Forest boundary.”  To add, “Forest Service Road 102 to Pacheco Road is also closed.”

The current status of its potential to grow, along with its terrain difficulty, is at extreme making it harder to combat.

Some good news is that, according to the picture below from InciWeb, since its most destructive day on June 20, 2011, the growth of the fire has decreased.
