Talking Talons prescribed burn continues


ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There could be more smoke in the metro area Thursday as a prescribed burn continues in the East Mountains.

The Talking Talons burn east of Tijeras will tackle another 32 acres Thursday.

Wednesday’s burn in the same area created a lot of smoke, causing concern and a lot of phone calls.

Officials said the burn went very well and stayed within the designated area Wednesday and they expect the same for Thursday, but they encourage you to call them if you have questions.

The burn is being run by the Sandia Ranger District.
