Wallow Fire Is 10% Contained

6-4-11 Hwy180/US191 32

According to InciWeb:

The fire is 10% contained. Currently the fire is not threatening Eagar and Springerville area. On the eastern side of the fire, fire behavior was moderate. Today’s activities include mop-up and hazard tree removal in the Alpine, Nutrioso, and Tal Wi Wi areas. Mop-up is underway in the South Fork area following the burnout operation conducted last night. Burnout operations were completed along FR 220 south to US 180, northwest of Luna, NM.

  1. Wayne – thanks for the photos – you should forward these to the media. So difficult getting anything this close. My parents have a cabin (along with others) in a valley along country road 2152 which is halfway between Alpine and Nutrioso on the south side of 191. Where are you stationed? Thanks for the work of all of you up there. We truly appreciate it! Caroline imcarrie2u@aol.com
