Firefighters battle Tijeras-area structure fire



TIJERAS, N.M. (KRQE) – Firefighters battled a large structure fire in the East Mountains near Tijeras on Wednesday.

Bernalillo County official Larry Gallegos said the fire was off Yucca Flats Road, which is near where South 14 and State Highway 217 meet.

Bernalillo County firefighters say there are not many water resources out there, so they requested help from nearby Santa Fe County.
