From the text ... 'On May 29, 2000, just 3 weeks after the Cerro Grande Fire was ignited in northern New Mexico's Bandelier National Monument, the Viveash Fire erupted some 30 miles (48 km) to the east, on the Santa Fe National Forest. A human-caused blaze, Viveash grew to 2,000 acres (800 ha) by the end of its first day. Residents of nearby ranches and canyons were soon evacuated. ...The Viveash Fire marked the first time that rehabilitation was virtually completed before the incident management team was demobilized. ...Support from incident management teams cut down on the time it took for rehabilitation treatments and provided crews and needed equipment. ...As fire suppression becomes more complex, the responsibilities of incident management teams will expand to include more rehabilitation.'
