ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — If lightning strikes in the New Mexico wilderness and
starts a fire, the blaze would normally be little more than a blip on
the radar of land managers who have earned a reputation for letting
flames burn to keep forested lands from growing into a tangled mess.
This season is different. Now firefighters are trekking deep into the Gila National Forest with trains of equipment-carrying horses and one overriding goal:
snuffing out all fires, no matter how small or remote.
