Forest officials will be conducting a prescribed burn in the East Mountains this week.

It’s going to take place in the Sulpher Canyon, just one mile west of Sandia Park.

As many as 92 acres will be treated to improve the area’s health and provide better protection to the community.

Officials are asking people not to call 911 if you see smoke in the area.
