    Ruidoso mandatory evacuation- wildfire

    Wildfire started on the Mescalero Apache reservation but has moved towards the village. Initially just the N & NW canyons were evacuated, but I’m seeing the entire village is being evacuated

    just a heads up for anyone that was planning to escape the summer heat up there

      A buddy of mine called me earlier. They have a vacation house there. The last pics he got on his cameras were of the house on fire, and then cameras went out. Their VRBO guests evacuated earlier. Horrible deal.

          Gotta be absolutely gut wrenching to see it burn when you're hours away

            That’s wild! I thought I saw some big storms on radar there a few days ago, guess they were to far east

              It would be WAY worse if it was their home. But it's just an investment property that's insured now for a lot more than they paid for it. He's not happy about it, but it's not near as bad as losing your home. Some folks out there are going through that nightmare for sure.

                        We just canceled a house for this weekend. We were heading that way on Thursday. We’re going to keep them all in our prayers for sure!

                          Were you going to the concert at Ruidoso Downs, Wade Bowen?

                            Not til Wednesday at the earliest, but chances do go up from there with decent rain chances and maybe up to an inch through the weekend

                              If we could snag last minute tickets we were going to. It was just a quick get away, and I found out about the concert only a few days ago.
