ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – Fire officials have determined that a nearly 2,100-acre fire burning in northern New Mexico near Taos was human-caused.

The Sardinas Canyon Fire was still zero percent contained on Sunday, a week after it was first sparked. Nearly 200 personnel – along with several engines and air support – are working to stall the fire's advance through the Carson National Forest.

Overcast conditions are expected to help on Sunday, officials said. Meanwhile, the forest is closed to the public, with the exception of the Jicarilla Ranger District, Eagle Rock Lake and Mallette Park—those areas will remain open in daylight hours.

Officials are also reminding the public that using drones in the area impedes on their firefighting efforts.
