Under-reported Stable Fire, Jemez Mountains New Mexico

We have been getting some smoke the past couple weeks from an under-reported fire, about 5 miles West of Jemez Springs.  The Stable Fire was started by a lightening storm on Stable Mesa.  From radio traffic, it sounds like the Forest Service is using the fire as an opportunity to introduce low-intensity controlled burns (= forest restoration) to a few hundred acres of forest around the fire.  More info.
