Ruidoso Fires Update

July 18 - From the Ruidoso NM News Page:


July 3, 2024
In a recent update on the South Fork Fire, wildland fire and law enforcement investigators have confirmed that the fire was caused by a lightning strike. This conclusion comes after a thorough investigation by multiple agencies, including the Bureau of Indian Affairs, U.S.D.A. Forest Service, and the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

The fire, which ignited on June 17, 2024, near the community of Ruidoso on Tribal trust land administered by the BIA Mescalero Agency, quickly spread to over 15,000 acres within the first 24 hours due to high winds. As of July 3rd, the South Fork Fire has consumed 17,569 acres and is now 87 percent contained thanks to the concerted efforts of firefighting teams.

While human activity has been ruled out as a factor in the South Fork Fire, the cause of the nearby Salt Fire remains under investigation. The FBI has announced a $10,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for starting the Salt Fire. Anyone with pertinent information is urged to contact 1-800-CALL-FBI, text "BIAMMU" to 847411 for anonymous tips, or submit tips online at

The Bureau of Indian Affairs emphasizes its commitment to upholding Tribal sovereignty and ensuring public safety through the Office of Justice Services. Their efforts continue to focus on protecting life and property, enforcing laws, and maintaining justice and order within Indian communities.

MAFCA National Events

May 31 - MAFCA is seeking a chapter or group of chapters to host a national event such as a National Awards Banquet, National Tour or National Convention. The common belief that this undertaking is difficult is offset if a few chapters join together to put on the event.

Guidelines for hosting are available on this website in the MAFCA policies area under the member’s only section. And it doesn’t even have to be in your backyard. For example: The 2025 National Tour, hosted by the Dallas Texas Chapter, will be a super event where we’ll have the opportunity to visit Civil War battlefields starting in Waynesboro, Virginia. And the last time I checked, Texas is a long way from Gettysburg or Antietam! Click Here to Read More
