SANTA FA, N.M. -- U.S. Forest Service officials say that they are still dealing with abandoned campfires over the weekend, while at the same time battling the Cajete Fire that has engulfed over 1,360 acres in the Santa Fe National Forest and temporarily displaced many residents from their homes.

Crews have already had to work to put out at least three other abandoned campfires on Sunday, according to officials, as they work to prevent potential new fires. It was determined that the Cajete blaze was started by a campfire.

As a result, the Forest Service has released a press release reminding campers of tips regarding the handling of campfires. They can be viewed here.
