01-13-22 Update:  Crews have completed 200 acres on the Pacheco Canyon prescribed pile burn this week.  Due to ventilation rates, fire managers decided not to burn today. The plan is to continue ignitions on the Pacheco Canyon piles tomorrow and, if necessary, into Saturday if conditions are favorable. 

On Wednesday, the BIA and Pueblo of Tesuque implemented the 111-acre Vigil Grant prescribed pile burn near the Pacheco Canyon treatment area.
