ESPANOLA, N.M. (AP) — Authorities say a wildfire in Santa Fe National Forest has spread across more than 5,000 acres.

The South Fork Fire is one of three fires burning Monday on the northern New Mexico forest.

Three helicopters dropped water for several hours Sunday to try to contain the 5,143-acre, lightning-caused blaze but it continued to spread. Firefighters closed off a large area surrounding the fire.

The Tecolotoe Fire south of Gallinas Canyon on the Pecos district has burned more than 700 acres. Earlier, officials put the acreage at 1,300 acres but reduced it following more accurate mapping.

The Red Fern Fire east of Cuba has destroyed a historic outbuilding and burned more than 100 acres.

On the Carson forest, officials have prepositioned firefighters due to strong winds and dry conditions.
