The Los Alamos Fire Department has 25 firefighters responding to a 4 acre fire down in Los Alamos Canyon now known as the Omega Fire burning near the Canyon Rim Trailhead - eastern edge of Los Alamos, south side, across N.M. 502 and the Los Alamos Co+op Market and Holiday Inn Express.

LAFD reports there is no crowning at this time and the fire line is moving east in the canyon with 50 percent containment and making positive progress, however, smoke is still visible. Please avoid this area - N.M. 502 eastbound is not closed at this time but this is an active fire fighting scene. Check back for updates.
