Posted on 07/19/2020

Los Alamos Fire Department (LAFD) and the US Forest Service (USFS) are on the scene and actively addressing four small fires spotted late this morning above the Quemazon subdivision of Los Alamos. Two helicopters are dumping water on the fire and the fires are approximately one or two acres.

 

Individuals are asked to stay clear of Quemazon Trail, Pipeline Trail and the LA Reservoir. The Quemazon Trail is CLOSED to hikers at the entrance at 48th Street and Trinity. Pipeline Trail is CLOSED to hikers at its entrance on Quemazon Rd. With helicopters busy taking water from LA Reservoir, LAFD asks that individuals avoid LA Reservoir for public safety.

 

Another update will be issued as soon as additional details are available. Winds in Los Alamos are light and rain storms are expected to build over the Valles Caldera early this afternoon, bringing showers to these areas.
