Authorities say the lightning-sparked blaze expanded Friday into the Bosque del Apache but no other structures were threatened.

Officials say the inferno is 40 percent contained.

The fire is burning grass, brush and salt cedar on private land near San Marcial in Socorro County. The resulting plume of smoke could be seen by motorists along Interstate 25 and by weather forecasters on their radar systems.

Officials say lightning started the blaze Monday on private land.
