Gaby -- Go to:
Department of Interior National Interagency Fire Center;
National Interagency Coordination Center Daily Situation Report
; or, http://www.fs.fed.us/land/wfas/welcome.htm to learn more about fire.  Not 
to worry.  Forests burn every once in a while and this keeps ecosystems healthy!

If anyone has firsthand information about the fire at Mesa Verde in relation 
to cultural resources, please let us know.

Brian,  I read about the Mesa Verde Nat'l Patk  fires on the wire services 
(I've set up an electronic clipping service that retrieves anything with the 
word 'archaeology' in it.), but not many details. The German newspapers just 
cover the fires in general but not this particular one. Could you get some 
first hand information and keep us informed via the newsletter?  Needless to 
say I'm worried.
