CIMARRON, N.M. – Duane Shell stood outside his house Friday (June 1), the streets of Cimarron thick with a yellow smoke from a fire burning not far past the baseball field and little airport. Except for Snell and about 15 stragglers who didn't heed the mandatory evacuation order, the town was mostly empty by mid day.

The Ute Park fire burning east of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains grew to nearly 5,000 acres Thursday night (May 31).
Smoke from the fire settled into the community of Cimarron Friday morning. "The smell is strong and pretty heavy," wrote Cimarron city councilor Laura Gonzales about 4 a.m. on a Cimarron Information Board on Facebook. "I encourage anyone with respiratory issues to consider evacuating as soon as possible given the heavy smoke. This is not mandatory, just advisory."
Officials closed U.S. 64 between Eagle Nest and Cimarron temporarily due to the fire, which had jumped the highway, according to the Red River Fire Marshal's office. The fire was last reported to be moving east northeast.
