CONWAY, NH (AP) — A wildfire in northern New Hampshire that has burned 106 acres is nearly contained, officials said Friday.
The Bemis fire at Crawford Notch State Park, White Mountain National Forest and private land started May 13. It is located on steep, rugged terrain. The cause is being investigated.
“It is important for the public to know that the Bemis Fire remains an active fire site and that firefighters and equipment are still on site,” said Capt. Adrian Reyes of the New Hampshire Forest Protection Bureau.
“This weekend is expected to bring record temperatures to the region and we are asking everyone who wishes to spend time outdoors to avoid the fire area for their own safety as well as the safety of the Wildland crew,” he said.
