Incident Overview Updated: 1 month ago

The Lone Mountain Fire began on May 26, 2019, and is located about 6 miles north of White Oaks, NM on the Smokey Bear Ranger District of the Lincoln National Forest. Pinon-juniper, limited grass, and ponderosa pines cover most of the area where the fire is located. The fuel type, location and weather conditions make the Lone Mountain Fire a unique and ideal candidate for a confine-and-contain fire and could allow fire managers to reduce the number of pinon/juniper trees, fuel on the ground and create the space for more grass to grow.
