ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — Fire crews have been making progress on the Pine Lodge fire near Capitan.

It's now 24% contained. The fire has burned just shy of 13,000 acres.
State Road 246 from Capitan to Roswell remains closed, but local residents will be allowed to access their properties.
The cause of the fire is still unknown.
