JEMEZ SPRINGS, N.M. (AP) — Forest Service officials say 10 people were evacuated from the community of Seven Springs because of a wildfire burning in the Jemez (HAY'-mehs) Mountains northwest of Albuquerque.

Evacuations also were ordered for campers in the Fenton Lake area.

The fire has grown to an estimated 1,370 acres.

It is burning on the Santa Fe National Forest about six miles northwest of Jemez Springs and a half-mile southwest of Fenton Lake State Park.

Forest officials say as many as 83 structures are threatened.

Several engines, air tankers, a helicopter, a bulldozer and three hot shot crews are among the resources called in to battle the flames.

Forest officials suspect an abandoned campfire started the blaze. Crews put out 17 abandoned campfires on the Jemez Ranger District over the Memorial Day holiday.
