ANGEL FIRE, N.M. (AP) - With another bad wildfire fire season expected across drought-stricken New Mexico, Angel Fire Resort is establishing a fund to aid firefighters.

The northern New Mexico resort says it is creating the Northern New Mexico Firefighter Fund and will donate 10 percent of all sales from this weekend's summer season opening activities, including mountain biking, golfing, fishing, boating, zip lining and chairlift tickets.

The resort's mountain operations manager, Jamie Seifert, says drought season is a scary one in the mountains, so Angel Fire Resort wants to help provide as many resources as possible for firefighters.
