New Mexico wildfires still growing

Tuesday, June 4, 2013 - 10:37pm

More than 900 firefighters are trying to contain two wildfires burning in the Northern New Mexico mountains. The Tres Lagunas fire has burned almost 13 square miles in the Sante Fe National Forest.

Approximately 140 homes have been evacuated and officials say they do not know when the residents will be allowed to return due to the unpredictability of the fire. Meanwhile, approximately 50 homes were evacuated near Jemez springs, which is where the Thompson Ridge Fire is burning. That fire more than doubled in size on Monday to about three square miles in size.
