My time lapse video of the Little Bear Forest Forest Fire that is burning near Ruidoso, New Mexico. The fire started near Ski Apache on June 4, 2012. I sped the movie up to 16X the normal speed, except for the clip labeled "normal speed". All of the clips were shot in the Capitan, Nogal, and Carrizozo, New Mexico areas on Saturday, June 9, 2012.

Firefighters have been struggling with the Little Bear Fire for several days now. As of 6 AM MDT this morning the fire had consumed 34,561 acres and remained at 0% containment.

They are hoping for a break today as a cold front moves into the area and the winds shift around to more of an easterly direction, and humidity values go up. Not to mention the chance for thunderstorms Tuesday. Hopefully if they do develop they will produce more rain than lighting and gusty winds.
