Smoke front the Whitewater-Baldy Complex Fire drifted back into southeastern New Mexico overnight last night and early this morning.

As of this mornings briefing this massive fire had burned 152,012 acres and still remains 0% contained. It is on track to become the largest wildfire in the states history, surpassing even the Las Conchas Fire of last year. There are 1,112 firefighters fighting the fire but hot, dry, windy weather and steep terrain continues to hamper firefighting efforts.

Meanwhile firefighters continue to battle the El Capitan Fire burning near Guadalupe Peak. As of yesterday's noon briefing the fire had burned 200-400 acres. It is burning in very rugged terrain and firefighters are having to hike into the Guadalupe National Park to get to the fire.


Hot weather is forecast for the local area today and tomorrow as an upper-level ridge of high pressure settles in over northern Mexico. Highs today and tomorrow will range from near 100 to 105.
