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.
