Dear tourists: many areas of New Mexico are currently not on fire

The city government folks in Santa Fe, NM, want to assure you that, despite all the smoke, Santa Fe itself is currently not on fire:

A news release issued by city government on Wednesday declared that “forest fires burning in Northern New Mexico are well removed from the City of Santa Fe and are not disrupting the city’s busy summer schedule.”

The fires “that you might have seen on the news” are more than 20 miles from city limits and haven’t affected a planned summer tourism season of art markets, opera performances and other events, the statement said.

To check if your vacation destination is currently on fire, I recommend Inciweb.
