Las Conchas Wildfire: Photos

Posted by Jessica Ball

Here is a progression of photos from the Las Conchas wildfire, burning near Los Alamos, NM, from around 3pm yesterday afternoon to the evening:

About 3pm MT, driving to Los Alamos from Santa Fe

Glow from the flames at 9pm


At last check, the fire had gone from a few hundred acres yesterday afternoon to more than 43,000 acres this morning. Los Alamos National Lab is closed for the day, although the fire is still a mile or so away from the Lab’s southwestern border.
