    2

    Reports of smoke began to come into local emergency lines mid afternoon Friday, with some reports indicating a source in the Turkey Springs area, east of Pagosa Springs and north of U.S. 160. Investigation revealed there is a fire, but that it is burning at a site over the Divide, in Mineral County. High winds in the area make any fire extremely dangerous as fire danger is rated high in the San Juan National Forest.
