Fire crews from several agencies responded to two wildfires in Valencia County on Wednesday afternoon.

The four-acre Crawford Fire burned a ditch on Gabaldon Road near Belen, but was stopped by firefighters. Crews remained at the scene overnight to deal with hot spots and monitor containment.

The cause of the fire is under investigation.

Crews also stopped the two-acre Canejo Fire burning on the East Mesa.
