More than 2,000 firefighters continue to battle two large northern New Mexico wildfires as smaller blazes pop up throughout the drought-stricken state.
Officials said Saturday that both the 29-square-miles Thompson Ridge Fire and the 15-square-mile Tres Lagunas Blaze remain 40 percent contained. Both continue to burn on opposite ends of the Santa Fe National Forest in northern New Mexico.
An evacuation order remains in effect for Thompson Ridge, Rancho de la Cueva and Elk Valley.
Tiny wildfires were also reported southwest of Cook's Peak near Angel Fire and near Mt. Taylor outside of Grants.
