The Baca Fire has grown to 1,697 acres. It is burning west of Baca Float, 27 miles south of the I-40 and Anvil Rock Road intersection. Due to the remoteness of the fire burning in steep, rugged and in accessible terrain with minimal values to be protected within five miles of the fire, a modified suppression strategy is utilized to maximize firefighter and public safety. This strategy makes suppression costs commensurate with values to be protected.
