ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. – While southwest Colorado and northern New Mexico deal with big blazes, a new fire sparked Friday afternoon just 13 miles away from the 416 Fire in the San Juan National Forest.


The Burro Fire started around 4 p.m. on Friday, and fire crews say it's burning in rugged terrain southeast of the Bear Creek Trailhead on Highway 145. The latest estimates have it at 30 acres and growing.

No structures are threatened as of Friday evening, and no one is believed to have been injured in the fire.

The cause is still under investigation.
