Wind a concern for NM fires

ALBUQUERQUE (KRQE) – There is still real concern about all the wind’s effect on the fire danger.

Two new small wildfires broke out near Belen Wednesday. One of them destroyed a camper and threatened homes. That fire was 75-percent contained at last check.

The other fire is now fully contained.

Fire risk remains in much of the state, especially during red-flag warning, windy days. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
