SANTA FE, N.M. (AP) - Gov. Susana Martinez is scheduled to tour a wildfire burn recovery area in New Mexico's Lincoln County on Thursday.

The tour will cover areas affected by last year's Little Bear fire including Bonito Lake and Philadelphia Canyon, the site of several home losses.

After the tour, Martinez will receive a detailed briefing and discuss continued recovery efforts in the county as well as state plans for future recovery efforts in other areas of the state with fires still burning.

Also on Thursday, the governor will be in San Lorenzo to be briefed on fire suppression efforts for the Silver Fire burning in southern New Mexico's Gila National Forest.

The fire is the state's largest active wildfire at 47 square miles as of Wednesday.
