Fire Burning In Valles Caldera

A fire started midday Thursday in the Valle Caldera.: The fire is estimated to have burned about 50 acres. National Forest and Valles Caldera have fire-fighting resources working the fire. A special weather statement was just issued for the Jemez Mountain area about storms with heavy rainfall moving into the area on Friday, so, there may be a good chance that rain is on the way to help firefighters.

The fire was spotted at 2:20 p.m. today in the Valles Caldera near San Antonio Mountain. Smoke is visible over the western mountains of Los Alamos. Fire resources are actively working at the site right now. The County will provide more information as it becomes available. Photo by Brian Nelson
