The Los Alamos Fire Department has 25 firefighters responding to a 3 to 5 acre fire down in Los Alamos Canyon near the Canyon Rim Trailhead - eastern edge of Los Alamos, south side, across NM502 and the LA Co-Op and Holiday Inn Express.

LAFD reports there is no crowning at this time. The fire line is moving east in the canyon. No containment. Smoke is 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 more on this developing story.
