Santa Fe County orders brief evacuation due to brush fire

SANTA FE COUNTY, N.M. — A brush fire prompted evacuations for an area just off of the Turquoise Trail between Santa Fe and Madrid, deputies say.

The Santa Fe County Sheriff’s Office briefly issued an evacuation order for Calle Manzano and West Nambe.

Emergency management officials say someone reported the fire at 3:30 p.m. Tuesday, near the intersection of NM-14 and Shenandoah Trail.

That intersection is southwest of where the evacuation was in place.

It burned five acres and a small shed but was contained. Santa Fe County deputies will investigate the cause.
