RUIDOSO, N.M. — Lincoln County is reaching out to part time residents who had houses and cabins burnt by the Little Bear Fire.
Residents are encouraged to clear burn debris from their properties now while disaster relief organizations are still active in the area. Despite evident recovery efforts, many home sites, primarily belonging to part time residents of Lincoln County, have yet to be cleared, according to officials.
Officials said homeowners need to sign up with either organization within the next few days to guarantee that they are put on the work order list.
Officials also said the New Mexico Baptist Disaster Relief group is also lending a hand clearing burn debris off of properties where the home was spared from the fire. They are available to cut down burned trees, clear and stack other fire related debris.
The Lincoln County Emergency Operations Center can email or fax an application to homeowners out of the area, 575-258-INFO(4636) and a friend or neighbor can fill out an application in person on the homeowners behalf.
