ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – The Albuquerque Fire Department says it’s investigating after a fire flared up in the Bosque Monday afternoon.

AFD says Albuquerque firefighters, State Forestry and Bernalillo County firefighters responded to the blaze on the west side of the river just north of Montano around 4:00 p.m.

When they arrived, firefighters on scene reported flames 8-10 feet high. AFD says they worked quickly to contain the fire to about six acres.

At the height of the fire, AFD was asking drivers to avoid Montano near Coors. Now, fire officials are just telling drivers to be cautious of emergency vehicles in the area.

The cause of the fire is under investigation. AFD says it still has units on scene to extinguish any potential flare ups and patrol through the night. provides commenting to allow for constructive discussion on the stories we cover.
