Oh..I didn't know that, thank you. I thought that it was because the fire was on White Mountain.

So if there was a fire near Tularosa High School, would it then be called "The Maroon and White Fire." Hmmm....

My heart and prayers go out to Barbara Greene and her family. She has been through too much over the past five years.

But there's nothing around Tulie high that would burn wild like the White fire did.
