By The Staff

Los Alamos Fire Department crews responded to a small brush fire near TA-8 and quickly put it out Friday afternoon.
According to the Los Alamos National Laboratory EOC, a small brush fire reported near guard post 431. The lab confirmed the fire was in a tree and LAFD crews did knock down the tree after the fire was put out.
TA-8 is off N.M. 501 (West Jemez Road).
“It was very small, less than one acre,” lab spokesman Steve Sandoval said. “Not sure of cause but earlier this afternoon there was lightning over the Jemez. Don’t want to speculate if it was lightning because I don’t know.”
Sandoval said no structures or employees were in danger. At press time, it could not be confirmed if lightning started the fire.
Ironically, the fire happened on the same day that LAFD instituted Stage I fire restrictions. The following acts are prohibited until further notice:

• Building, maintaining, attending or using an open fire, campfire, charcoal or wood stove on all Los Alamos County lands.
• Smoking is prohibited except within an enclosed vehicle or building, a developed recreation site, or while stopped in an area at least 3-feet in diameter that is barren or cleared of all flammable materials.
