ALBUQUERQUE - The Cebollita Fire may only be two acres, but it's creating a lot of smoke visible from nearby communities, the jemez Ranger District is reporting.
The fire reported about 2 p.m. Friday is about three miles west of La Cueva and is not spreading, according to a statement from the Santa Fe National Forest.
It is believed to be human-caused.
Firefighters from the La Cueva volunteers are on the scene, and a U.S. Forest Service engine has been dispatched.
The fire is particularly smoky because of the fuels on the ground, the Forst Service said.
Smoke is visible from La Cueva and Jemez Springs and can be expected to settle into low-lying areas and drainages overnight.
If you're looking for something fun to do with the kids this weekend, or if you just want to get into the holiday spirit yourself, head out the Anderson Abruzzo Albuquerque International Balloon Museum.
This is something I would have wanted to do as a kid during my winter break: Destination Moon Camp! Here to tell us all about this is Michelle Watkins with the Challenger Learning Center New Mexico.
Dinner rolls are a wonderful compliment to those holiday dishes, and shaping dough is quite easy.
