Los Alamos Deputy Fire Chief Justin Grider has confirmed that a fire broke out a short time ago in the area near TA-54 at Los Alamos National Laboratory.
“We’re checking on the cause, which may have been a squirrel because it broke out near the powerlines,” Grider said. “The fire is completely out now.”
Grider described the fire as burning an area about 5 feet wide by 60 feet long.
TA-54 was not affected.
