KKOB Radio with Merritt Hamilton Allen

Steven joins longtime friend Merritt Hamilton Allen on KKOB 96.3 Radio to talk the lastest Calf Canyon fire news.
Ben Maes, Steve’s father, lost his home and most of the forest on his property in Holman, New Mexico. Nearly two years later, there has been almost no restitution to the victims of the fire – even though $4.3 BILLION has already been approved to compensate the victims.


**The 2022 Calf Canyon/Hermits Peak Fire was the largest and most destructive wildfire in the history of the U.S. state of New Mexico. Burning 341,471 acres (138,188 hectares) between early April and late June in the southern Sangre de Cristo Mountains (in San Miguel, Mora, and Taos counties), the fire was the most significant of the record-breaking 2022 New Mexico wildfire season as well as the largest wildfire of 2022 in the contiguous United States.[2] The fire destroyed at least 903 structures, including several hundred homes, and damaged 85 more, while threatening more than 12,000 other structures in the region.
