Organ Mountains Fire

A fire, apparently arson, started today about 5:30 on the Las Cruces side of the Organ Mountains. The origin was evidently just south of Dripping Springs.

By late evening about 400 acres had been burned. Several homes were evacuated. The old sanatorium ruins at Dripping Springs are evidently not at risk.

June 17 — The fire is basically out. Fire fighters from as far away as Lincon and Silver City helped fight it.
