The Las Conchas Fire has spread an estimated 15,000 acres to the north into the Santa Clara canyon and pueblo, fire officials said.
Los Alamos, however, is “in the best shape we’ve been in since this thing started,” said Fire Chief Doug Tucker.
Fire crews built a strong line along State Road 501 to protect the city and the laboratories, and Tucker was confident the city is in good shape.
Winds today pushed the fire several miles north into the canyon, instead of east toward the city. Though it is good news for the city, the fire is still growing quickly, burning an estimated 20,000 additional acres, with 15,000 acres to the north of the existing fire area. The total acreage burned is thought to be approximately 90,000, though more accurate numbers will become available through the night.
