Forest Service to do controlled burns
Controlled burns planned in two areas of the Santa Fe National Forest could send smoke into canyons and make it hard for those with health issues to breath.
The burning operations are planned starting Monday in the forest's Jemez and Coyote ranger districts.
The Jemez operations include burning near Ponderosa Camp and near the Valles Caldera's northwest corner.
The burning planned on the Coyote district will likely be seen from the communities of Espanola and Abiquiu.
The fires are being set to reduce hazardous fuels and restore forest health.
