A wildfire came out of nowhere on Sunday in northern New Mexico. It led to an immediate evacuation of Los Alamos County. By Monday afternoon 44,000 acres were burned. The fire spread to the boundary of the Los Alamos National Laboratory (headquarters for United States military nuclear research). Later smoke drifted through Santa Fe–which was preparing to receive evacuated residents. The fire already destroyed about 30 homes and outbuildings in the county, and is still entirely uncontained and highly unpredictable!
