We report on the recent NIR flare of the intermediate redshift QSO (z=0.54) BZQJ0713+1935, cross correlated with the Gamma-ray source 2FGLJ0714.0+1933. On March 18th,2017 MJD(2457830.7377), we found the source with NIR fluxes corresponding to J = 15.776 +/- 0.04, H = 14.806 +/- 0.05 and Ks = 14.064 +/- 0.04. While, on MJD 2457807 the flux in the H band corresponded to H = 15.924 +/- 0.04. Hence, the source has tripled its flux in this short lapse. Our observations are carried out with the 2.1m telescope of the Guillermo Haro Observatory operated by the National Institute for Astrophysics, Optics and Electronics (Mexico), equipped with the instrument CANICA a NIR camera. We encourage further multi wavelength coverage.
