Bomb threat snarls evening commute -- More updates

By John Severance

The Truck Route was closed for about 45 minutes Wednesday afternoon because of a bomb threat at the SOC shooting range at TA-72 on Los Alamos National Laboratory property.

“Someone called about 3:45 p.m. and said there was a bomb on the shooting range,” LANL spokesperson Kevin Roark said. “The Truck Route was closed. Emergency management responded and the area was checked out by a bomb-sniffing dog. The road reopened at 4:22 p.m.”

As a result, that caused a massive backup on the Truck Route and N.M. 502 heading east. Traffic was back to normal about 5:30 p.m

Roark said, “These things are extremely rare and I can not remember the last time there was a bomb threat. We have a protocol and we followed it.”

Lighter winds help in fight against N. Mexico fire

GLENWOOD, N.M. (AP) — Lighter winds aided crews battling a massive wildfire in southwestern New Mexico's Gila National Forest, but they still were unable to stop the blaze that has raged across more than 190 square miles of mountainous forest lands since last week.

As the strong, erratic gusts slackened Sunday, teams focused on building protection lines on key flanks of the blaze.
