Fire Warning – Baca County


Saturday night a fire started south of Granada and burned through the night and into Sunday. Crews from several towns were there to help fight the fire. The orange glow could be seen for miles. This area is currently having RED FLAG warnings daily and extreme fire danger with wind gusting. Please do not burn trash, weeds, or throw cigarettes out the window of your car. Thank you to all the men and women that fought the blaze and those who volunteered to bring water, food, and other necessities to the people fighting the fire. Photo courtesy of Cheryl Taylor
