A half acre, no structure fire was fully contained Thursday. The fire occured one half mile south of the Redondo Campground. The fire was visible from north of Albuquerque, Jemez Springs, Gilman, Jemez Pueblo and from N.M. 4.
Fuels on the ground are dry due to the lack of moisture and are creating a fair amount of smoke. A fire investigator is also on scene. The fire was in the Jemez Ranger District.
