The firefighters were airlifted to a hospital and treated by medical staff. Both have since been released.

“This incident again emphasizes that firefighting is a dangerous profession,” stated Valles Caldera National Preserve’s Superintendent Jorge Silva-Bañuelos. “Our firefighters’ and the public’s safety is always our first priority.”

Wind gusts are expected today accompanied by low humidity.  The Valles Caldera National Preserve and Santa Fe National Forest remain under Stage 3 Closure due to extreme fire danger.

The San Antonio Fire has burned 495 acres and is 30-percent contained.
