Quick Summary AI Powered

The Calf Canyon/Hermits Creek blaze has burned more than 341,000 acres and destroyed hundreds of homes in New Mexico.

Persistent drought, limited overwinter precipitation, less than average snowpack and fuel accumulation all contributed to rising the risk of fire escape, according to the report.

Fire official Ralph Lucas points to a forest burned by the Hermits Peak Calf Canyon near Holman, New Mexico, U.S., May 24, 2022.
