RUIDOSO, N.M. (KRQE) – Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham offered words of support to firefighters and the Ruidoso community while being updated on the McBride Fire today. “I’d love to promise every single person in this room that every bit of property gets restored to its full value. All of the insurance issues and FEMA reimbursements can’t replace what’s lost. It won’t. Life, raising your families, things that mean everything that can’t be readily replaced. Aren’t going to be replaced. I know that. I know that you know that,” she said.
