Some info about the June, 2017 "Golden Fire" at the
bottom of Heartbreak Hill, at the BLM shooting range.

Here are photos........
..... by residents and a County firefighter.

Also screenshots from the Mad River Hotshots' 2017 video.

The County was all over it from the start,
and the Incident Commander called in a 4-engine (jet)
air tanker, a helicopter with bucket that was at Tijeras, and the
Mad River Hotshots plus other crews.

Unfortunately, a sawyer on the Santa Fe County Black Canyon Crew was
badly burned when his saw 'geysered'. May he heal well!
